The advanced BOOM (formerly CaDRE) course consists of two sessions, requires 10 interviews and is conducted entirely online. Additional guidance for the aerospace/defense and healthcare industries is provided. Select teams that complete BOOM will be eligible to apply for $50,000 National I-Corps team grants.
BOOM teams, like National I-Corps teams, are composed of three members: the Entrepreneurial Lead, typically a postdoctoral researcher, graduate student, or other student who possesses relevant technical knowledge and a deep commitment to investigate the commercial landscape surrounding the innovation; the Principal Investigator who serves as the technical lead and project manager; and the Business Mentor who provides entrepreneurial experience and serves as the principal guide in determining the technology disposition.
