Funding for Innovative Ideas! 

Do you have an idea that you think has commercial potential? Do you dream of starting a company sometime in the future? If your answers are yes, then the National Science Foundation I-Corps program may be right for you.
The UW I-Corps Site Program builds upon the University of Washington's demonstrated strengths in building an interdisciplinary innovation ecosystem, broadening participation of underrepresented groups, and in collaborating with regional stakeholders. Our Site program recruits exploratory business ventures started by faculty, staff, students and alumni, providing teams the infrastructure needed to accelerate business exploration and creation. The program focuses on agile innovation tied to customer discovery while providing networking opportunities, resources, and financial support to help move projects forward. 
Each I-Corps grant will provide $2,500 to eligible teams as they gain first-hand feedback from potential customers and clients. See details and apply at
