About Short Courses

 

While exploring your current project, you’ll learn to apply the same process to other technologies – now and in your future career. Participants in this free course will learn how to acquire and apply information from the marketplace, customer interviews, and industry partners.

 

The Short Course features lecture and group breakout work in person, followed by two weeks of remote sessions. At the end of the two weeks, teams present findings at an in-person wrap-up.

 

If you work with a team, the whole team can participate in the Short Course. Teams already working with industry mentors stand to maximize their experience in the Short Course, but a mentor is not required. Short Course participation is a great way to get connected with the nation-wide NSF I-Corps network of mentors, Sites, Nodes, and programming.
