ZAP! is based on the successful National Science Foundation Innovation Corps (I-Corps) methods of accelerating the translation of university engineering research to the marketplace.
It’s really easy! Here are the steps:

• Go to and complete the application (check out the application for other dates if these don’t work for you)
• Before the first class, fill in the attached two-slide template. Don’t worry if you don’t know all the terms – we’ll teach them in our course – just give it a try.
• In the first class, learn about business terminology and more importantly, how to interview customers to understand their needs.
• Interview 5 people in the week following the first session.
• Tell us what you learned in the second session.

That’s it! Join the wave of innovators commercializing their technologies!
