Check out the 2 minute Lessons Learned video from National Science Foundation (NSF) #ICorps team Brack2Fresh from UC Berkeley‘s Berkeley Lab (formerly LBNL). This was the 1000th team in the National program and they’re moving ahead with commercializing technology to desalinate ground water for CA farmers.
Brack2Fresh did a fantastic job of finding product-market fit. They used their $50k I-Corps grant to travel across the country and interview 103 potential customers during the 7-week program.
The team got started in our one week *free* Lean Startup Immersive Short course, held monthly Haas School of Business – UC Berkeley.
