NanoEarth Entrepreneur-in-Residence (EiR)

group meeting

The role of an Entrepreneur-in-Residence (EiR) is to help mentor NNCI users, faculty, students, and staff about topics related to entrepreneurship and commercialization, such as starting (or not starting) a new venture, where to find start-up capital, what local innovation and entrepreneurship resources (e.g., business accelerators) are available, how to navigate the university intellectual property process, and what common pitfalls to avoid. Developing entrepreneurs can benefit greatly from this mentorship and many established entrepreneurs are more than willing to provide it.
