Hexcite program accepting applications for business, design, and technical spots

Nonclinical applications are now open for Hexcite, the Johns Hopkins early-stage medical software accelerator hosted by the Technology Innovation Center.

Through 16 weeks of business and technical design workshops, Johns Hopkins business, technology, and design leaders collaborate with Johns Hopkins clinical entrepreneurs in creating a software solution that will improve patient care.

Start-up teams test business concepts with customers, refine their commercialization road map, and test their technology idea. Teams exit the accelerator prepared to gain early-stage funding for prototype development and pilot.

The nonclinical Hexcite application deadline is 5 p.m. ET on Monday, Oct. 18.

The nonclinical team members we are looking for include:

Design Leads
+ Johns Hopkins affiliate undergraduate or graduate students in design-related majors.
+ Johns Hopkins affiliates with design experience.

Technical Leads
+ Johns Hopkins undergraduate or graduate students majoring in CS or BME.
+ Johns Hopkins affiliates with technical experience.

Business Leads
+ Johns Hopkins Carey Business School students.
+ Johns Hopkins affiliates with business experience.

The Hexcite 2022 cohort launches in January 2022. This year's program will be both virtual and in-person, with participants benefiting from weekly 2.5-hour sessions. Sessions include a variety of speakers, interactive activities, and group work/mentoring components. The weekly sessions lead up to a Final Pitch event.

Apply by Oct. 18 on the Hexcite nonclinical '22 page. Questions can be sent to Jasmine McNeil at hexcite@jhmi.edu. More information is available on the Hexcite website.
