Our entrepreneur-in-residence program brings the outside in.
The entrepreneur-in-residence (EIR) helps drive strategy and takes our ability to listen and act on what customers need to the next level. Typically an EIR program is a way for venture capital firms or investors to nurture a big idea and then invest in the new venture at the end of the EIR’s term. For Dell, this program helps us create an even more meaningful bridge between Dell and the marketplace. In September 2011, Dell announced the creation of our first EIR program with the addition of a leading entrepreneur in green IT, Ingrid Vanderveldt.
