The Entrepreneur in Residence (EiR) Program is one of the primary ways that we connect the Georgetown campus to the “real world” of entrepreneurship. Accomplished entrepreneurs – some of whom are Georgetown alumni – are on campus throughout the term to act as mentors and advisors to students.
EiR office hours are held in Hariri 308. On some occasions, EiRs may conduct their office hours over the phone or by skype; if you would like to meet with an EiR, we recommend that you email them in advance to check whether or not they will be on campus. You may also arrange to meet or speak with the EiRs at another mutually convenient time.
