I-Corps at RIT
In 2014 RIT was designated as an NSF University Site to provide "internal" I-Corps training to STEM student and faculty. Each team recieved training, a coach, and access to $3,000 to advance their technology concept.
In 2016 RIT joined forces along with Cornell University and the University of Rochester to create the Upstate NY (UNY) I-Corps Node. Through the Node we provided "external" I-Corps training to faculty and researchers through RIT and our partner institutions.
January 1, 2023 marked the official launch of the Interior Northeast I-Corps Hub. The Interior Northeast I-Corps Hub aims to expand the nation’s geography of innovation by developing a regional I-Corps innovation network that can become a repeatable, inclusive model of education and workforce training designed for and by innovators based in rural regions and small cities.
