EIR Workshops

The Research Park created an Entrepreneur-in-Residence (EIR) program that hires local experienced technology entrepreneurs to provide monthly consulting to new startup ventures and prospective technology entrepreneurs. By sourcing this talent from the local region, the program selects peers that have faced similar challenges in commercializing research/early stage technology and are able to provide advice on their own path to successfully attracting investment, revenue, and industrial clients. 

These workshops are for Research Park EIRs to share their wisdom, stories, and advice with the audience. To find upcoming EIR Workshops, check the Calendar.
