Entrepreneur in Residence Program

The purpose of the Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) Program is to:

  • Provide helpful advice and guidance to our students, faculty or staff from across the Columbia campus who are launching businesses.
  • Engage successful alumni and other accomplished practitioners in building the entrepreneurship program at Columbia Business School.
  • Provide specific domain (sector/geography) knowledge and expertise.
