I-Corps@Ohio is a statewide program developed to assist faculty, staff and students at Ohio universities, colleges and community colleges in validating the market potential of technologies and launching startup companies. I-Corps@Ohio grants a maximum of 16 team awards of up to $12,500 each year. The duration of each award is six months. Teams that receive I-Corps@Ohio funding are required to complete an intensive eight-week, hands-on training program designed to help understand the market for their technology, develop a compelling commercialization strategy and attain new skills that will be useful to a long-term career in research and development. Two cohort tracks are offered in Science and Engineering and Medtech, with each designed to offer both common and subject matter specific content.
