Entrepreneurs in Residence Pty Ltd (EiR) was established 2000 as a hub of experienced 'entrepreneurs' who are 'in residence' to help businesses realise their commercial goals.
Our core philosophy is to BUILD ENTERPRISE CAPABILITY
based on the key principles of MANAGEMENT, MARKET, MONEY & MOMENTUM
with the express aim to CREATE & REALISE SHAREHOLDER WEALTH
EiR has commercially managed investment funds with the specific mandate to source, select, structure, develop and exit early stage buisnesses in the ICT sector. The fund investors were the Australian Federal Government under the the Building of IT Strenghths and ICT IP programs. These funds were used to de-risk targeted investments to be sufficiently investment ready to attract private investment capital.
EiR assessed some 400+ emerging technology-based businesses and established an investment portfolio that participated with (i.e. invested in) 29 start-up and early expansion business.
As a consequence, we have extensive experience with and wide range of technologies including ICT software (eg. applications, development tools) and hardware (eg. communications, display), Medical Instruments and Clean Technology.
Our experience has also exposed us to a diverse range of industry sectors such as mining, retail, financial services, defense, education, mining, media, gaming, law and order, logistics and consumer electronics.
Equally we have been exposed to many different business models - we have experienced ‘in the trenches’ many approaches that work well but equally seen the numerous ‘innovative’ models that simply don’t work at all.
