Industry sponsors play an essential role in the advancement of discovery and the vibrancy of Baltimore’s innovation ecosystem. We seek relationships with sponsors who share our passion for advancing and commercializing innovations and ventures borne and nurtured at Johns Hopkins University. Sponsorships come in many forms and may include financial support, pro bono services, and other forms of engagement. Sponsors engage with our entrepreneurs in myriad ways, including office hours, professional seminars, one-on-one mentorship and happy hours.
