Broderick Brings Experience in Startup Investing to EIR Role

One of the key resources for Pitt innovators who are determined to see their discoveries make an impact on the world are entrepreneurs in residence (EIRs) at the Innovation Institute, part of the Office of Innovation and Entrepreneurship. EIRs are available for consultation at every step of the entrepreneurial journey, from initial idea or discovery to licensing or startup formation and beyond. The Innovation Institute’s newest EIR brings decades of experience from a variety of perspectives to offer to Pitt innovators. Previously as the director of the technology licensing department of the renowned Mayo Clinic, and as a partner in several private equity and venture capital firms, Dan Broderick has been at both ends of the negotiating table with academic entrepreneurs.
