Business Accelerator Program

Each company is matched with one of our Entrepreneurs in Residence (EIRs). These entrepreneurial experts have been involved as founders and leaders of multiple start-ups over the course of their careers. They utilize that experience to help provide general guidance and connect teams with resources.
