Students, faculty and entrepreneurs at UA can soon participate in a five-week entrepreneurship experience. UA’s Alabama Innovation and Mentoring of Entrepreneurs center is recruiting participants for the I-Corps South Winter Regional Cohort that kicks off Thursday, Jan. 26, at Alabama A&M in Huntsville.
The program, hosted by UA, in partnership with Alabama A&M, Georgia Tech, UAB and the University of Tennessee, seeks teams of 2-4 persons interested in commercializing research. Teams are taught strategies for creating and testing a business thesis and hypotheses about a business model. Instructors and mentors will provide advice and guidance.
