Berkeley-Haas Entrepreneurship

National Science Foundation Innovation Corps


NSF I-Corps

The University of California Berkeley, University of California San Francisco and Stanford University are collaborating on an educational program aimed at commercializing science and technology research and fostering innovation locally and nationally thanks to two consecutive three-year, $3 million grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF) that commenced on March 1, 2013.

The primary goal of the Innovation Corps (I-Corps™) is to increase the impact of NSF-funded research by setting up innovation ecosystems within universities that will train the next generation of entrepreneurs, encourage partnerships between academia and industry and commercialize science and technology. The resources of the program are available to NSF principal investigators and their graduate students as well as to Bay Area and national startups.
