Entrepreneurs-in-Residence (EIR) guide early-stage companies through specific projects and issues, such as staffing for growth, budget management, resource planning, strategic partnering, obtaining investment, and board management. An EIR has a strong background in executive-level management at technology-based companies. Seasoned executives share experience, skills, and acquired knowledge with early-stage companies.
For New York State-based clean energy companies, the EIR program is facilitated and managed by Columbia Technology Ventures. The EIR program works with each company to understand its specific needs and provides a pool of qualified EIRs who can help.
