Entrepreneurs in Residence (EiR)
A primary objective of the Georgetown Entrepreneurship Initiative is to maintain a consistent exchange of ideas between students and faculty on campus, and entrepreneurs in the broader business community. This goal is achieved in many ways, including guest speakers, adjunct faculty, mentors, and competition judges. 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.
These members of the Georgetown University faculty are actively involved in the research and teaching of entrepreneurship. The group includes both academics spanning a broad range of disciplines as well as experienced practitioners. They are committed to supporting the Georgetown Entrepreneurship Initiative and to working with students to demystify the process of starting and growing a new venture.
