Idaho I-Corps Ignite Demo Day (10 a.m. MT on Thursday, July 8) will feature teams from Idaho universities sharing venture ideas based on their research.

Faculty, post-doctoral, and graduate students from varying academic backgrounds participated in the four-week Idaho I-Corps Ignite summer program. The program delivered training, facilitated connections with service and capital providers, and established a scalable structure for participants seeking to go to market with their ideas. Participants worked with the Venture College and a network of mentors to refine their solutions into ventures through research, customer discovery, and idea validation.
