The Entrepreneurs in Residence (EiR) and Entrepreneurial Advisor Program is one of the primary ways that we connect the Georgetown campus to the “real world” of entrepreneurship. These accomplished entrepreneurs are on campus and “on-call” throughout the term to act as mentors and coaches to students. Come meet them at our weekly chalk talks, or reach out and schedule a meeting/call – they are ready and willing to help.
The profiles are listed below – click on the photo for their bios and contact details.
