Hello StartingBlock Community!
I’m excited to be your new Entrepreneur in Residence (EiR). This role has been held by some amazing people in the past who have left big shoes for me to fill. The EiR role is an effort to best support you and your venture(s) as you navigate the various decisions and roles you play while being an entrepreneur and/or working in a startup venture. Nora and I are working on a formal introduction for this, but I’m itching to launch this partnership 🙂
In the past, the EiR has held office hours for members to meet and ask questions, seek advice, and request introductions from our personal network. I hope to continue this but also want to hear from you as to what else you are looking for. Please join me this Friday, August 27 from 12:00-1:00 PM on the 3rd floor Cafe balcony with your lunch to get to know each other and for you to voice your ideas for the “Entrepreneur in Residence 2.0” role. We will also have a Zoom option for those who are unable to attend in person, link will be sent via Slack later this week. All ideas presented on Friday will be evaluated by the StartingBlock Team and me as to what may be able to be implemented, what may work better with other partnerships SBM already has, and/or taken as general feedback for how the organization can better serve the members in the future.
I look forward to getting to know you more, learn about your venture, and be able to support what comes next!
