I-Corps IN-LA Node
USC Viterbi is the proud home of the Innovation Node – Los Angeles (IN-LA), one of only nine National Science Foundation Innovation Corps (“I-Corps”) national nodes, in a partnership between UCLA, Caltech, and USC. Our collaboration now extends to Arizona State University, Cal State LA, California State University Northridge, The State University of New York, The University of Arizona, University of Colorado Boulder, University of Nevada, Reno, University of Washington, UC Irvine, UC Riverside, UC Santa Barbara, and UC San Diego.
We have extended I-Corps methods beyond the National Science Foundation, providing education for the Department of Energy First Look West (FLoW) program and the Air Force Research Laboratory system.
The I-Corps program uses experiential education to help researchers gain valuable insight into entrepreneurship, starting a business or industry requirements and challenges.
Teams that successfully complete the IN-LA Node's regional program will be eligible for sponsorship to apply to the National I-Corps Teams Program.
