Meet Eric Garcetti’s New(ish) ‘Entrepreneur-in-Residence’


Amir Tehrani — LA’s New ‘Entrepreneur-in-Residence’

We were recently at a party speaking with a guy who goes to USC (majoring in sociology) who told us he’s currently interning for “the Entrepreneur-in-Residence.” We were like, come again. He explained that Eric Garcetti appointed his boss to work in this position for the city of Los Angeles.
So much like Eric is the Mayor, his boss is the Entrepreneur in Residence. We took to Google and verified this amazing fact. Later on that night, we had a chance to meet our EIR in person. His name is Amir Tehrani,  he went to Anderson (UCLA), and is actually one of two of our city’s new entrepreneurs. His was appointed in June which is why we call this post new ‘ish’. His role is to “bring his personal expertise to City Hall”. He is the Founder and President of Allied Group and serves on the board of several ventures. He also serves on the boards of the Young Presidents Organization Bel Air Chapter, the Hub Los Angeles, and the Los Angeles Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship. You can read an interview with Amir Tehrani on the Mayor’s website.
