About the Innovating Together Series

The Northeast I-Corps Hub supports our regional I-Corps teams to succeed on their entrepreneurial pathways towards technology commercialization. To connect our teams to the people and resources in the regional innovation ecosystem, we’ve launched the Innovating Together virtual event series to bring together programs, resources, and people in the region that can help your innovation and startup be successful. We work with Hub-institution Faculty Leads as well as technology transfer offices across the Hub to ensure that you take advantage of opportunities for guidance, mentorship, support, and funding. The ultimate goal is to bring your innovation through I-Corps and obtain the resources needed for impact! From regional program leaders to investors to mentors, who knows? The next guest speaker may be your next collaborator!
