The Global Entrepreneurs in Residence (GEiR) program, part of the cross-campus Innovation & Entrepreneurship Initiative, brings experienced entrepreneurs from beyond the United States to the CU Boulder campus and community.  The aim is to boost the entrepreneurial ecosystem by involving international entrepreneurs as experts and guides.

GEiRs work across the CU Boulder campus mentoring students, faculty, and staff in a wide variety of projects that require an entrepreneurial mindset. GEiRs may guest lecture in classrooms, advise on entrepreneurial research, and provide mentorship to CU community members who are developing their own startups.
