Entrepreneurs In Residence (EIRs)
The Entrepreneurs in Residence (EIRs) are seasoned professionals who engage directly with VelocityTX client companies to help accelerate their journey toward commercializing groundbreaking innovations in biotech, medical device, and healthcare IT. VelocityTX network of EIRs is powered by some of San Antonio’s most successful entrepreneurs, investors, business, and top industry leaders — who serve as a sounding board for the entrepreneur, providing valuable, critical, and direct feedback through one-on-one confidential sessions. Each EIR brings a vast body of knowledge and experience in the bioscience and healthcare ecosystem, the formation and development of early-stage companies, and the challenges surrounding the entrepreneur life. All EIRs are certified in the GrowthWheel International Inc. Coaching methodology, a framework designed to identify opportunities and challenges of the company. The EIRs work with each VelocityTX client to develop a 30, 60, 90-day plan to take their company to the next level.
