The National Science Foundation I-Corps West Region Hub is part of a nationwide network of universities formed to accelerate the economic impact of federally funded research and provide entrepreneurship opportunities to researchers in an inclusive and welcoming environment.

The U.S. National Science Foundation’s Innovation Corps (I-Corps) Hubs form the operational backbone of the National Innovation Network (NIN), which consists of universities, NSF-funded and other researchers, established entrepreneurs, local and regional entrepreneurial communities, and federal agencies.
Hubs work collaboratively to build and sustain diverse and inclusive innovation networks across the country. Through its national and regional training programs, Hubs train researchers to bring promising ideas from the laboratory to the marketplace.
