Business Model Generation by Alexander Osterwalder (link to sample)
The Innovation Igniter program is designed to help participants get introduced to the commercialization process and path to licensing their innovation or creating a startup company.
The Innovation Igniter is a prerequisite to the Innovation Institute’s NSF I-Corps First Gear commercialization program for Pitt.
Don't have an idea or invention? No problem!
Participants are encouraged to participate whether they have an idea, invention, or are simply curious about the commercialization process.
Having trouble explaining the value of your innovation?
You are not alone in this.
During the workshop, we will help you clearly and confidently articulate your value proposition to both scientists and non-scientists.
