Reminder about out Entrepreneurs-in-Residence
As the new school year kicks off we want to remind all of our students about our Entrepreneurs-in-Residence (EIRs) who have volunteered their time to help students in any way, whether it is giving advice on startup ideas, helping to prepare pitches, or talking about their experiences in entrepreneurship. They are a great resource and have a wide range of expertise - so please reach out whenever you want some advice!

Read more about this year's EIRs here.
