Behind every great pitch – is a woman.

The AccelHERator, JHTV’s year-long series dedicated to female inventorship at Johns Hopkins, presents its final event Pitch It On!, a competition featuring Johns Hopkins women innovators virtually pitching their ideas for a live panel and audience. We will be joined by pitch “coaches,” Johns Hopkins University alumni Misti Ushio, CEO of TARA Biosystems and Melissa Fenderstock, Co-Founder and CEO of Landsdown Labs.

Attend for an exceptional showing of talented Johns Hopkins women inventors. Vote for your favorite pitch and watch them win $10,000 towards their innovation! RSVP below.
