We’re looking for leaders, entrepreneurs and company creators to come build the future with us through our Entrepreneur-in-Residence (EIR) Program.
Build the future with us
Our EIR program is designed to identify and develop leaders for HVL’s growing portfolio of B2B SaaS startups. As an EIR, you will play a prominent leadership role, where you will:
- Be responsible for launching and growing new ventures developed in the HVL Studio
- Gain hands-on experience in creating and building SaaS products from the ground up
- Receive mentorship from our Founder/CEO throughout your journey
- Explore the opportunity to manage an HVL Studio company, join one of our portfolio companies or build a company of your own.
Our preference is for the candidate to be based in Birmingham, Alabama, but are open to considering applicants from other locations.
This is an excellent opportunity for an entrepreneur who recently exited a company, someone with startup leadership experience, or for those who are considering launching their own company. We are looking for talented individuals who have a track record of leadership experience and can propel our growth and success to the next level.
An interview with EIR and CEO of ListedKit, Derrick Magnotta
What intrigued you about joining HVL as an EIR?
The EIR program provided an opportunity to pursue entrepreneurship with the support of an experienced team of mentors and advisors at HVL. Entrepreneurship can be risky and isolating. As I met the HVL team, I gained more confidence that I could achieve my goals with their collaboration and support.
What have you loved most about the experience of being an EIR?
I came to HVL from a senior leadership role in a mature company. The mentorship and on-the-job training I received through the EIR program made me a better leader and executive. From day one, HVL perfected the blend between practical advice and philosophical frameworks for the problems facing my business.
What has been your biggest takeaway since becoming an EIR?
As an entrepreneur and founder, we have the luxury of simultaneously managing our product cycle, our marketing cycle, and our business cycle. The team at HVL has taught me how to zoom in and zoom out of each, and see their interconnectedness in real time.
Would you recommend HVL’s EIR Program to others?
Since day one, I’ve woken up excited to attack my job every day. This has been the most fulfilling role of my career.
