Join Nebraska faculty, staff and students for a spring semester program to learn strategies about connecting research innovation with market applications. The Nebraska Introduction to Customer Discovery program begins Feb. 7, 2022.
The free, non-credit program is based on the National Science Foundation’s Innovation Corps, which helps researchers develop a value proposition and customer segmentation. After identifying and interviewing prospective customers, researchers use feedback to guide decisions about a startup company or technology commercialization.
The program features four evening sessions, held via Zoom or potentially a hybrid model, led by a team of campus instructors and an NSF National I-Corps instructor. It also includes office hours with instructors between sessions. All faculty, staff and students are eligible to participate.
Sponsoring organizations include NUtech Ventures, Invest Nebraska, the Combine Incubator and the National Strategic Research Institute.
