I-corps profitable business workshop classroom

Free workshops for aspiring entrepreneurs coming to iWerx

Missouri University of Science and Technology has created an entrepreneurial education program for those interested in generating ideas, devices, processes or other intellectual activities.

Missouri S&T is first to host an Innovation Corps (I-Corps) Site program in the state. Funded by the National Science Foundation, I-Corps was created to provide business and technical information to rising entrepreneurs and technological innovators.

For more than four weeks, participants can gather valuable details from three-hour evening sessions one night per week. Participants are not required to have any previous experience with entrepreneurship nor in business to apply.

I-Corps is hosting one of the free workshops at iWerx, 1520 Clay St. in North Kansas City. The workshops will run from 4-7 p.m. Wednesdays, from Feb. 20 to March 12.
