NYCRIN Testimonials

"NYCRIN is dedicated to teaching technology entrepreneurship and performing research that advances this endeavor. Its aim is to become a global leader in technology innovation and entrepreneurial business development by leveraging the existing innovation ecosystem in New York City."

Gillian Small, Ph.D., NYCRIN Principal Investigator, City University of New York

"I learned a lot from the I-Corps experience and I feel like my strategies toward my research have also changed. I am grateful for the time [the teaching team] spent reviewing my business canvas and interviews and providing [their] advice."

Omid Dehzangi, EL,
NYCRIN April 2013 Cohort

"The [I-Corps] program, along with the entire 'Teaching Team', was outstanding, even for someone who thinks they know a lot about the world of startups. It was, as they say, a valuable learning experience for me as a Mentor, as well as for our Team."

Tom Harrison, IM, NYCRIN April 2013 Cohort

"Thanks again for a job well done!!!!! Everyone I reached out to the last couple of days had nothing negative to say. At times, PIs, mentors or ELs would approach me on their own and offer ONLY positive comments about both the curriculum and the instructors."

Rathindra (Babu) DasGupta, Program Director, I/UCRC and I-Corps

"I'd like to thank you all for guiding us throughout the customer discovery process."

Maciej Pietrusinski, EL, NYCRIN April 2013 Cohort

"Thank you so much for your constant support and advice in training me towards entrepreneurship. The program was fun and educational at the same time."

Raviprasad Aduri, Ph.D., EL, NYCRIN April 2013 Cohort

"Thank you again for being a critical (literally!) part of the I-Corps program for me. It was a great experience and I learned a lot."

Linda Plano, IM, NYCRIN April 2013 Cohort
