EIRs guide early-stage companies through specific projects and issues, such as staffing for growth, budget management, resource planning, strategic partnering 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 companies receiving NYSERDA funding or participating in other NYSERDA programs, the EIR program is facilitated and managed by High Tech Rochester. High Tech Rochester works with each company to understand its specific needs and provides a pool of qualified EIRs who can help.
