EDUCATE

Through experiential learning

Share Your Expertise

The Entrepreneur-in-Residence (EIR) program connects successful entrepreneurs and professionals with current students, faculty, and staff seeking advice on launching their own entrepreneurial venture.

Each EIR’s level of participation is based on their availability, with some providing appointments monthly and others providing appointments more frequently. Additionally, some EIRs provide call-in appointment options while others meet participants at the Herb Kelleher Center for Entrepreneurship.

All UT students, faculty, or staff are eligible to use our EIR service.

COVID-19 update: Our EIR appointments are currently offered as video calls.
