The NSF I-Corps Short Course is coming to UAlbany from October 18th-November 1st! Students, researchers and startups are invited to register for this free, 2 week entrepreneurial training course hosted by the UAlbany Innovation Center in the Massry Center for Business. The 2 week course will be broken up into 5 sessions, 2 in-person to kick off the program, 2 online to share progress and check in and 1 final session where teams give their final presentations. The course will be taught by Anthony Testa from RIT Saunders College of Business and Bob Manasier, the EIR and New Ventures Manager for the UAlbany Innovation Center and Innovate 518.
