The NYCRIN Regional Innovation Corps (I-Corps) Short Course uses the Lean Launchpad curriculum based on Steve Blank’s Customer Development methodology and Alex Osterwalder’s Business Model Canvas.

As such, it demands that teams ‘Get out of the Building’, and spend the majority of their time talking to potential customers to discover how their technology could effectively ‘solve’ customers’ unmet needs or pain points. This program not only helps teams commercialize their specific research, but also teaches researchers how to approach their work by thinking about market needs earlier in the process.
