Gates Institute Entrepreneur in Residence


The Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) focuses on helping Gates Institute members develop their technologies for commercialization. The Gates Institute has realized that to effectively move technologies to the clinic, research scientists need someone with previous experience to guide them through the process, especially the FDA requirements. The EIR is able to provide that support and connect Gates Institute members with consultants and advisors, as needed. The EIR also works closely with CU Innovations to patent the technologies, to market them to existing companies, and to assemble a team if the best option is to form a startup company.
