After the online sessions, teams are required to meet back in-person at the program finale. The finale consists of a 2-minute Lessons Learned Video followed by a 10-minute Lessons Learned presentation. Additionally, teams are invited to a What’s Next panel that discusses different paths for what lies post I-Corps. See below for potential program outcomes.
The structure of an I-Corps cohort is as follows:
I-Corps Kickoff (3 days)
I-Corps Teams members are required to attend a mandatory, in-person kickoff event. The kickoff consists of an introduction to the teaching team, an introduction to the Lean LaunchPad methodology and the customer discovery process. During the kickoff, teams are required to “Get Out of the Building” and perform initial customer interviews. These will form the foundation for each team to build upon and further develop their hypotheses throughout the course.
