I-Corps @ UMass Innovators Jump-Start Program Begins

The deadline is extended to Monday, March 22, 2021 at 5 p.m. for the Innovator’s Jump-Start program that begins April 10, 2021. The program provides hands-on training and help in initial exploration and testing potential customer interest in your product idea. Gain professional development, broaden the impact of NSF research, and gain access to additional funding. Apply Now!

If you haven’t already completed an Innovators Warm-Up, please register for the session below. This program offers a fun group exercise that will stretch your innovation muscles; you do not need an idea to attend. Note: To participate in the Jump-Start, at least one team member must have completed an Innovators Warm-Up. If you completed a Warm-Up in a previous year, you do not need to again.
