Innovation & Entrepreneurship


The I&E program is all about learning from seasoned entrepreneurs. To keep the dialogue strong, the energy fresh, and the work relevant to today, we tap into the outside world to bring you Entrepreneurs-in-Residence (EIRs) who will help students learn how to be successful.

Each year, the I&E program welcomes practitioners from varying backgrounds who bring real-world experiences to students.

Here are some of the Entrepreneurs-in-Residence who have worked as adjunct faculty, student mentors, and sounding boards at various points in I&E history.
