Johns Hopkins Technology Ventures and Luminox- Health, a leading Israeli Health IT incubator, are collaborating on establishing an ecosystem that serves as worldwide leader in the exponentially growing eHealth market through the creation of a runway that connects Israel’s unique entrepreneurship and innovation with world-class medical expertise, faculty thought-leadership and technology at Johns Hopkins. This collaboration provides the opportunity for Hopkins faculty to team-up with Israeli entrepreneurs in building disruptive solutions to modern medical challenges.
The JHTV-Luminox collaboration includes unique programs for Israeli startups and entrepreneurs, including:
- “HexciteIL” Program – designed to co-create startups by bringing well-vetted Israeli entrepreneurs to Baltimore and pairing them with outstanding multi-disciplinary teams comprised of Hopkins medical, computer science, and engineering faculty in an intensive 3-month program to identify use-cases, co-develop IP, perform rapid prototyping, and conduct sponsored research. HexciteIL will be offered through the Johns Hopkins Medicine Technology Innovation Center, operating in FastForward East. HexciteIL is designed to translate disruptive solutions to address unmet needs in healthcare.
- Entrepreneur-In-Residence Program – exposes Hopkins faculty, staff and FastForward startups to Israel’s diverse entrepreneurship ecosystem through programming and sponsorship events. As part of this collaboration, Israeli entrepreneurs will be based in Baltimore, working out of the new FastForward hub, and our Johns Hopkins faculty will have access to Luminox resources and network in Israel when working there.
- Business Acceleration Suite – Israeli startups within the Luminox portfolio will have access to world-class medical leaders, John Hopkins Technology Ventures and FastForward Accelerator resources, providing fast-track access to real-world healthcare environment for rapid prototyping, pilot studies, clinical trials, applied research, and business collaborations.
