MIN-Corps MVP Challenge
About the MVP Challenge
With support from the National Science Foundation, MIN-Corps is proud to introduce the MVP Challenge, an opportunity for students and researchers to develop “Minimum Viable Product” prototypes.
The MVP Challenge will award 20-30 grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 each.
What is an MVP?
MVP or “Minimum Viable Product” is a tool to show customers and other stakeholders how your innovation could work and to get their feedback.
An MVP might just be an illustration, or it might be a look-and-feel prototype or a prototype that demonstrates limited functionality, or it might be an actual working “beta” prototype.
Prototypes at all levels of development are fair game in the MVP Challenge, because we are looking for “Most Visionary Prototypes” that illustrate the potential of innovations to make a positive difference for people, businesses, society or the environment.
