Dr. Iman Noshadi and his Ph.D. student, Vaishali Krishnadoss applied for the regional (NSF) I-Corps program to help them extend their focus beyond the laboratory. This opportunity also helps them to understand the process of moving research projects toward commercialization on the market. Through I-Corps, they learned to identify valuable product opportunities that can emerge from their research. They also learned how to gain skills in entrepreneurship through training in customer discovery and guidance from established entrepreneurs and the teaching team. This regional course also provides a sum of $3000 for the purpose of customer discovery in order to think past the technology to focus on the business model.
