BECOME AN I-CORPS INSTRUCTOR
Instructors receive training in the I-Corps methodology to support new entrepreneurs. Trainings occur in conjuncton with both Regional Intro to Customer Discovery courses as well as National NSF I-Corps programs.
With the success of the National Science Foundation’s I-Corps program, universities across the United States are adopting and implementing evidence-based entrepreneurship programs to encourage economic development and commercialization efforts at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
The implementation of the I-Corps program has prompted the need for instructors trained in the I-Corps methodology. MWIN Instructor Training was created to educate, coach, and support emerging instructors so that they deliver well-rounded I-Corps programs to teams of entrepreneurs.
I-Corps program tools and philosophy are readily available through the Creative Commons licensing, and books are available for purchase to learn the specifics of the Business Model Canvas and Customer Discovery best practices; however, there is more to implementing the course than simply teaching the content. The way in which the course is implemented and the process by which the I-Corps program teaches entrepreneurs and companies to discern insight from their Customer Discovery interviews is a methodology in and of itself.
MWIN Instructor Training programs run in conjunction with Regional Intro to Customer Discovery courses. In person attendance is required for the Kickoff and Finale at least. The Midpoint can be attended via Zoom. The trainings listed below are intended for Regional-level I-Corps courses, not National-level I-Corps courses. Please contact email@example.com with questions.
