AccelerateGW I-Corps Site Program The AccelerateGW I-Corps Site Program, funded by the National Science Foundation, provides grants of up to $3,000 to GW researchers who wish to explore the prospects for applications of their research or technology to solve problems that could lead to a broader impact in society. The program will award at least 30 grants this year. Any GW student, faculty or staff is eligible to participate in the AccelerateGW I-Corps Site Program. The grant money can be used for travel and related expenses to conduct customer interviews. It can also be used and for some limited development of prototypes or a minimum viable product. Participants will be expected to complete an introductory course (two one-day workshops during a two-week period). In these workshops participants will learn and practice the concepts of the Lean Startup approach to entrepreneurship, including constructing business models, evidence based entrepreneurship and customer development. In between the class sessions, there will be some assignments, customer discovery interviews, and office hours with instructors. These activities generally take about 10 hours per week.
