Early-stage startups in health tech seeking a new cohort of entrepreneurs

JHM's Hexcite program accepting applications for health care, business, design, and technical spots

Hexcite, an early-stage medical software accelerator that's hosted by Johns Hopkins Medicine's Technology Innovation Center, is looking for health care, business, design, and technical leads to join its next cohort of entrepreneurs. The program's goal is to create software solutions that will improve patient care.

The startup teams are formed around a clinical problem and proposed solution, and each group is assigned an industry mentor who helps refine their business model and commercialization roadmap.

The 16-week program will be completely virtual this year, with participants joining a weekly session that will include speakers, interactive activities, and group work/mentoring components. Teams will then be prepared to build their technology with the Technology Innovation Center, conduct an internal pilot at Johns Hopkins, and launch a Baltimore startup.

Applications are now open for the following roles on Hexcite teams:

  • Clinical leads: Johns Hopkins clinical faculty or staff, operational leaders from Johns Hopkins (note: Co-clinical leads are encouraged)

  • Design leads: JHU undergraduate or graduate students in design-related majors, local designers

  • Technical leads: JHU undergraduate or graduate students majoring in computer science or biomedical engineering

  • Business leads: Johns Hopkins Carey Business School students (must apply through the Office of Experiential Learning), local entrepreneurs

To apply, visit the Hexcite 2021 clinical application website or nonclinical application website. Applications are due by Oct. 9.

More information is available on the Hexcite website. Questions can be sent to Jasmine McNeil at
