Seasoned entrepreneurs bridge the gap from lab to startup
OTD’s Entrepreneurs in Residence (EIRs) engage directly with Harvard research groups to help advance technologies toward the launch of a startup.
Whether through informal conversations over coffee, or more involved discussions that may develop over weeks or months, EIRs are ready to share their experience.
EIRs become familiar with the latest research in Harvard labs, give advice on entrepreneurship and innovation to those who ask, and — when the right opportunity presents itself — help catalyze new startups around Harvard technologies.
Harvard researchers may also wish to take advantage of OTD's Expert In Residence (XIR) program. The XIR program is designed to enable one-off conversations with experts in OTD's wider network, to quickly address tough questions in technology commercialization.
