Apply for I-Corps training trending idea

Initially, our team did not have clear expectations for the I-Corps program given our long history in commercializing new medtech technologies. We were quite surprised at the quality of the program, which enabled us to better our understanding of the neurointerventional market. The program is very intense and is so by design. The structure forces you to develop a clear market understanding in a short time. My advice is... more »
