MEIA’s Energy-Executive-in-Residence program is ideal for entrepreneurs, current or retired executives, or people who want to explore the routine & lifestyle of being a co-founder or board member of a clean energy technology company. Each team has a consulting budget that can be used to hire EEIRs to perform needed business activities. You will be accountable to the team leader and the team’s Project Manager for delivering work product and participating in the team’s strategic planning and customer discovery activities. The EEIR platform provides a chance for you learn first hand about what it takes to be on a startup team, and it enables you and the inventor to work together for a period of time to determine fit before the company is formally created. Since you are being paid, you will not receive equity for your participation as an EEIR.
We also have opportunities for Mentors who meet with teams as needed to give advice and who help open doors to industry connections and funding sources. Mentors are unpaid volunteers who give back to the entrepreneurship community by sharing their time and wisdom, and who may be good candidates for the Startup’s advisory board.
All current EEIR positions are filled. We continue to accept EEIRs on a rolling basis for future opportunities. Please apply using the form on this website: https://mdeia.org/eeirs
