Inside North Coast
For Entrepeneurs

North Coast is the first venture capital firm in the region to create an Entrepreneur-in-Residence(EIR)program. The purpose of the program is to attract, support and fund world-class technology entrepreneurs as they work closely with North Coast to develop new business concepts.

During the program, the EIR is a full-time member of North Coast who participates in the venture capital activity of the firm as well as working with the fund to plan their own new venture and recruit their founding team. Through this program, North Coast offers entrepreneurs the opportunity to learn how a venture capital firm functions, including assisting in the process of identifying, evaluating, and funding new ventures. The program typically lasts between six months and one year.

The EIR program provides entrepreneurs with an excellent platform from which to view industry trends and innovative early-stage companies. The program allows entrepreneurs to optimize their own search for the next great company, whether it is a venture they start and develop during their tenure at North Coast, or an exciting company they choose to join during the course of their exploration. Highly qualified and experienced technical innovators, entrepreneurs or managers interested in pursing the EIR opportunity should contact North Coast.
