While your university is steadfastly dealing with the fallout of the pandemic campus-wide, one particular population has been hit with a one-two punch. Student entrepreneurs have had their education put on hold or transitioned to a whole new way of learning, lost their student housing, and in many cases were forced to abandon their belongings in the process. To add insult to injury, their entrepreneurial projects have been adversely affected as well. As incubators, accelerators, makerspaces and educational courses closed their doors and began the transition to virtual platforms, many students and their projects were suddenly at risk of falling off the radar.

But not if Johns Hopkins’ student ventures team has anything to say about it. Continuity is incredibly important when it comes to student innovation and student-led projects, and Johns Hopkins Technology Ventures’ FastForward U has implemented a plan to deal with the fallout as seamlessly as possible.

Tech Transfer Central’s Distance Learning Division has teamed up with Kerrie Carden, FastForward U’s Director of Student Ventures, for this insightful one-hour distance learning event: How Johns Hopkins Maintains Support for Student Entrepreneurs During the Shutdown: A Case Study Webinar, scheduled for June 30.

Ms. Carden will offer insight into how to serve this particular population during the shutdown  by utilizing a variety of key resources, tools and approaches. Click here for complete details and to register.
