Once again, United Aircraft Technologies, Inc., participates at another NSF I-Corps program. What is the NSF I-Corps program? Well, Rochester Institute of Technology, Cornell University, and University of Rochester have partnered to create the Upstate New York (UNY) I-Corps Node. NSF I-Corps give entrepreneurs the opportunity to combine their technical and scientific knowledge to launch successful Science-based products into commercialization.
This program covers the importance of customer discovery along with the construction of a strong value proposition. It challenges entrepreneurs who are still learning how to launch their successful businesses and arms them with useful tools to avoid the common pit falls of the 'valley of suck.'
During this event, Daryian and Eva who are joined by the Academic Lead, Professor Asish Ghosh, will be conducting customer interviews in order to validate UAT's value propositions. As the program continues, UAT will share the progress along with some useful tips for other startups to follow.
