FastForward U Accelerator application deadline extended to Sunday, Jan. 28

FastForward U's accelerator programming is an opportunity for student teams (and solo entrepreneurs) from across the university to work collaboratively to make progress on their ventures. These engaging, cross-disciplinary initiatives build skills, grow networks, and connect founders with other entrepreneurial students, from undergrads to postdocs.

Teams or solo entrepreneurs are grouped by stage to allow students to learn together at a pace that makes sense for where they are on their entrepreneurial journey. Spark and Fuel tracks include a stipend and the chance to win additional funds at Demo Days.

The deadline for submitting an application is 11:59 p.m. EST on Sunday, Jan. 28.

All our accelerators are industry agnostic; any kind of venture (including nonprofits) is eligible to apply. We welcome any committed JHU student founder, or team, from undergraduate to postdoc, to engage with our opportunities!

There are two tracks available for applicants. The Spark Accelerator is an early-stage track for teams (or solo entrepreneurs) to explore and validate their ideas. The Fuel Accelerator is a later-stage track designed to help committed ventures get market/investor ready.

For more information, students can go to FastForward's accelerator website. Students with any questions are welcome to email us at
