The I-Corps Program teaches young entrepreneurs how to test and validate their startup ideas. It is free to participants, and accepted teams receive grants of up to $2000 for their startup idea. Participants do not need to have a full team upon signing up, and we pair students with startup ideas with those who want to join a team. Penn I-Corps has trained 127 teams since 2015. 66 are active startups and received grants totaling $13+ million, including the two most recent winners of the President’s Innovation Prize. Most companies stay in Philadelphia and hire local talent. The deadline to apply is Sunday, February 16.
