Digital health solutions bred from clinical spaces within Johns Hopkins Hospital come to life through Hexcite. Weekly, expert-led sessions help teams navigate the first steps of business and technical design using the Lean startup methodology, which focuses on growing a business with maximum acceleration.
Startup teams are formed around the clinical problem and proposed solution with entrepreneurial leads who offer business, technology, and design experience. Each Hexcite team is assigned an industry mentor that helps refine their business-model canvas and commercialization roadmap.
Applications are now open for the following roles on Hexcite teams:
- Johns Hopkins clinical faculty or staff
- Operational leaders from Johns Hopkins
Note: Co-clinical leads are encouraged.
- Undergraduate or graduate students in design-related majors
- Local designers
- Undergraduate or graduate students majoring in computer science or biomedical engineering
- Johns Hopkins Carey Business School students (applicants must apply through the Office of Experiential Learning)
- Local entrepreneurs
Following 16 weeks of inventive programming and mentorship, Hexcite teams are prepared to build their technology with the Technology Innovation Center, conduct an internal pilot at Johns Hopkins, and launch a Baltimore startup.
