Entrepreneur-in-Residence Program

About the Program

An Entrepreneurs -in-Residence (EIR) Program has been launched at UTHSC-H through the Office of Technology Management (OTM) to facilitate new venture activity based on technologies developed by UTHSC-H faculty, staff and employees. The EIR Program participants are typically serial entrepreneurs looking for the next latest and greatest technology to spin out into a new commercial entity.

EIRs at UTHSC-H typically are involved in the analysis of currently disclosed UTHSC-H technologies, including benchmarking, assessments, clinical validation, regulatory needs, platform alternatives, and competitive market analyses. EIRs formalize such analyses into business plans, with initial key milestones and financials, and may be eligible for a small stipend. If so interested, EIRs can also take the lead on company formation around a particular technology as CEOs.

How to become an EIR
