Cisco Entrepreneurs in Residence
Cisco Entrepreneurs in Residence (Cisco EIR) is a startup innovation program of Cisco Systems, Inc. Cisco EIR connects early-stage business-to-business (B2B) startups with Cisco and its global partner eco-system. Startups selected for the program accelerate their product and business development by leveraging funding, infrastructure support and expertise available through Cisco EIR.
EvoNexus is San Diego’s only community-supported, fully pro-bono technology incubator. We provide full services – furnished office space, domain experts and mentors, networking events, and the opportunity to leverage our wide network of business and VC contacts – to start-up companies striving to achieve sustainability. And unlike many other incubators, we provide these services entirely free of charge. Our incubator companies are under no financial or IP-related obligation to EvoNexus when they graduate.
