NextEnergy, a nonprofit organization has partnered with the University of Michigan Center for Entrepreneurship in planning its third annual training program that equips researchers and engineers with tech to market skills to move their ideas out of the lab and into the market.
The I-Corps Energy and Transportation program is modeled after the National Science Foundation’s I-Corps program, says Dan Radomski, instructor for I-Corps and vice president of industry and venture development at NextEnergy. Applications will be accepted through April 3 and the event kicks-off at NextEnergy May 18-20, coming to a close on June 23-24.
“As an incubator, we work with remarkable research teams all over the country,” Radomski says. “Many of their innovations have stemmed from federal research funding programs and are often the best energy and transportation technologies our nation has to offer.”
