Entrepreneurs in Residence
Entrepreneurs-in-Residence, supported by the Gigot Center for Entrepreneurship, provide early stage feedback, mentoring and networking assistance for ND student, faculty and alumni entrepreneurs. Hailed as one of the very best resources on campus for aspiring entrepreneurs, our EIRs can meet with students on campus or virtually throughout the globe. Entrepreneurs-in-Residence provide advice for developing proposed business ideas, assistance for early stage start-ups, and invaluable networking aid. Each of the EIRs specializes in different areas of expertise and can be assigned to work with you on your entrepreneurial endeavor. Networking assistance provided by our EIRs is extremely important, connecting aspiring entrepreneurs to others within the ND community who are better qualified to help them tackle issues surrounding the commercialization of their new ventures, in specific areas such as intellectual property, legal issues, funding.
