UGA NSF I-Corps Application

Projects supported by UGA I-Corps can be from any discipline of research and can originate from faculty research, student work, or industry projects. You can come in with your own existing technology, at any stage, that you or your team want to commercialize. Don’t have an idea or technology but want to learn how the customer discovery process works? Great! Fill out the application and indicate that you do not have a technology but would like to be placed with a team. 


In the application below, please fill out all the information to the best of your ability. Please indicate the role that best describes each of your team members (you can have multiples of one type, e.g. two entrepreneurs!), with the descriptors below:

  • Entrepreneur: Motivated team member that will take the most active part in the customer discovery process, usually a student
  • Technologist: Technical expert for the product or technology that understands its possibilities and applications, usually a professor or scientist
  • Mentor: an experienced or emerging business person with ties to the target industry, or a person with contacts within the target industry


If you don’t yet have a full team, only include information for the team members you do have and we will actively work with you to pair you with additional team members during our Startup Combine event.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Dan Geller (
