Throughout the academic year, the EIRs will be available to provide confidential ad-hoc consulting, coaching and mentoring designed to help Columbia entrepreneurs advance their venture concepts.  Professor Clifford Schorer will serve as the Director of the program. “The active participation of each EIR assists in expanding the platform of support provided by those interested in not only starting a business, but in developing the skills and entrepreneurial mindset that will enhance their future success, regardless of the path they choose,” Professor Schorer said.

Over the course of the academic year, EIRs will also offer individual workshops. To learn more about the program and request a meeting with an EIR, visit the web page
