If you are thinking about applying to NSF SBIR it may be a wise choice to attend an NSF I-Corps programming session prior to submitting your proposal. But where is programming located and what resources can you use to find the nearest program? Thankfully there are many locations to choose from in many major cities. In order to offer the NSF I-Corps program to the largest possible number of participants, NSF has partnered with universities across the U.S. to offer I-Corps Hubs. There are nine nodes and 99 locations at which to attend I-Corps programming. Nodes are consortia of multiple universities and offer a standardized curriculum. Universities acting as site locations provide internal institutional support to scientists and engineers.
