Our Entrepreneurs in Residence (EIRs) are many of Yorkshire’s most successful entrepreneurs. They are drawn from a variety of industries and have all built, and many are continuing to build, highly successful businesses. They have agreed to give time to deliver Masterclasses, take part in panels and provide mentoring for members of Connect Yorkshire.
