Carnegie Mellon University

Swartz Center Entrepreneurs-in-Residence

Entrepreneurs-in-Residence are a mentorship resource for students and alumni.

Since 1971, when the Graduate School of Industrial Administration (GSIA) became one of the first schools in the world to offer entrepreneurial education, mentors have been guiding Carnegie Mellon’s business students. Today, the Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship, the university’s central hub for education, engagement, collaboration and opportunity, offers invaluable mentorship through its Entrepreneurship in Residence (EIR) program. The EIR's eagerly share their knowledge and lessons learned from successfully creating, building and running startups.
