Entrepreneur-in-Residence (EiR)

Gain access to extra hands-on support provided by a local industry expert.

The Entrepreneur-in-Residence acts as an additional support for the UBCO community. An EiR is typically a successful startup CEO and/or executive, bringing extensive sector-specific expertise and guidance to the venture-building journey.

Our current EiR, Ty Summach, works with teams one-on-one through office hours, assists with content development and delivery and serves as a champion mentor.

Learning from someone who has ‘been there’ is invaluable.
