bwtech@UMBC provides expertise to faculty, students, and startups through our Entrepreneurs in Residence (EiR) program.

EiRs can offer vital assistance in several key areas, such as:

  • Bridging the gap between research and commercialization.
  • Providing guidance, leadership, and a path to follow.
  • Open opportunities to meet with potential investors, customers, and other business partners.
  • Developing a strong relationship with an experienced, successful business leader that can guide a company to the next level.  

If you are looking for support from an EiR or are interested in serving as an EiR, please contact Megan Wahler at mwahler@umbc.edu.
