THE INSTITUTE + Entrepreneurs In Residence

The gap between innovations and commercially viable technologies that enter the market is not an unfamiliar concept. The Sheikh Zayed Institute, in consultation with its Business Advisory Council, partially attributed this gap to the absence of resources such as resident entrepreneurs. The Institute rolled out the Entrepreneur In Residence (EIR) Program to ensure that the innovators receive the resources required to transform the technology from ideation into a commercially viable product, ultimately to have a positive impact on children’s health.
