UNB will launch its first I-STEM cohort in October 2019 thanks to support from the federal government.

A release says I-STEM uses a Lean Startup training program to enhance the ability of researchers and graduate students to bring their innovations to market.

The highly experiential training program will be delivered in collaboration with George Washington University in Washington D.C.

Through the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, Ottawa is providing a non-repayable contribution of $218,250 towards the implementation of the program.

In addition to improving UNB's ability to market its own innovations, I-STEM Instructors with the University will offer the Lean Startup training to future cohorts of researchers.
