Nebraska Introduction to Customer Discovery (N-ICD) Finale

4:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Joy Eakin, (402) 472-1783,
NUtech Ventures, the Center for Entrepreneurship, The Combine Incubator and the National Strategic Research Institute (NSRI) are leading a free, four-session customer discovery training program beginning February 8 and concluding March 22, 2021.

The non-credit program is open to Nebraska faculty, students, staff and postdoctoral scholars interested in strategies for connecting research with market applications. It is based on the National Science Foundation’s Innovation Corps (NSF I-Corps), which helps researchers develop a value proposition and customer segmentation. After identifying and interviewing prospective customers, researchers can use feedback to guide decisions about a startup company or technology commercialization.

The program features four evening sessions, to be held virtually, led by a team of UNL instructors and an NSF National I-Corps instructor. It also includes office hours with instructors and conducting customer discovery interviews between sessions. Participants may sign up individually or in teams of up to five people. The program cohort will be limited to 16 teams. All team members must attend all N-ICD classes unless provided prior authorization by the organizers.

Registration deadline: Thursday, February 4, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. or when capacity is met.
