All Sprint ventures complete 30 customer interviews, receive National Science Foundation I-Corps lineage (an opportunity to secure a $50,000 grant), Arrowhead Innovation Fund (seed-stage investment) eligibility and are provided post-Sprint support through Arrowhead’s alumni program, Arrowhead Ventures.
