Budding entrepreneurs in Missouri can earn funding while working with business experts to transform big ideas into new technologies that benefit society through the National Science Foundation’s Innovation Corps program at Missouri S&T.
S&T houses the only I-Corps site in the state. It offers entrepreneurial education with both collaborative experiential learning and business best practices that can help move startups into the marketplace.
The curriculum includes innovation- and entrepreneurship-based courses offered in computer science, engineering management and economics.
The program is accepting applications, which on acceptance provides a $3,000 stipend for materials or product-promotion travel. All interested Missouri-based students, businesses, academics and groups are invited to apply at i-corps.mst.edu/application.
