The I-Corps program is an immersive learning experience developed by the National Science Foundation for researchers, faculty, students, and others to determine if the problem they are working to solve exists on a larger scale in the market.

To date, more than 200 teams have engaged directly with Johns Hopkins I-Corps program which challenges participants to test their hypothesis on their technology’s relevance and viability through customer discovery, which will lead to viable value propositions.  Johns Hopkins Technology Ventures offers I-Corps programs to teams throughout the year.

Over the course of four weeks, participants will talk to at least 40 potential customers, stakeholders, users, and influencers to determine the real value of their technology.
