entrepreneurs in residence


We are looking for knowledgeable entrepreneurs with extensive skills, expertise, and proven success in a particular niche to join our team.

Propeller’s Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) program is for innovators that want to build the next big ocean idea, and work with a startup VC seeking narwhals (the ocean’s unicorns). 

EIRs work to explore opportunities around a particular ocean-climate market thesis, and build scientifically-validated Propeller startups. In particular, the functions of an EIR are to:

  • Discover and build investable businesses in the ocean-climate nexus
  • Grow relationships with our portfolio of researchers and scientists
  • Conduct market research and build investor conviction in a particular thematic area
  • Boost the operational processes of both Propeller and our portfolio companies and labs by adding a fresh perspective 

Why Propeller? Our EIR program offers exposure to concepts and opportunities in the ocean industry, an untapped resource in venture capital. We can help you sharpen your abilities and provide an environment that will encourage personal and business growth, while you bring your own entrepreneurial idea to fruition.


The oceans & humanity can’t wait. Let’s get started.
