Research-to-Market (R2M) is a 3-week program that teaches scientific and engineering inventors and teams the process of customer discovery and how to find a market for their technology by getting out of the lab. Derived from the National Science Foundation's I-Corps™ program, R2M leverages the nationally-recognized Lean LaunchPad and Business Model Canvas methodologies specifically designed for university researchers commercializing their inventions.

The program consists of:

  • Virtual workshops focused on customer discovery and finding a market for technologies
  • Team presentations and instructor office hours
  • 30 interviews done virtually in a target industry
  • Meeting and building connections with industry experts and mentors

Any innovator can attend, includng outside the CU System. Find out if you qualify.
