NSF issues first biennial report on I-Corps

In June 2019, NSF submitted a biennial report on the efficacy of the NSF Innovation Corps (I-Corps™) program, which provides hands-on entrepreneurship training to academic researchers and other scientists. The report includes metrics on the effectiveness of I-Corps at each federal science agency participating in the I-Corps program.

In short, from its 2011 inception through December 2018, 1,315 I-Corps teams (a total of 3,745 people) have received NSF I-Corps training, which has resulted in the creation of 644 startups and $301 million in follow-on funding across all disciplines of science and engineering.
