Johns Hopkins Technology Ventures kicked off its “Emerging CEO Panel Series” last week to help inventors and founders avoid blind spots and learn best practices for launching and scaling successful startups. Among the topics discussed were the role of a CEO in a company, how to find a CEO or what it takes if you want to become the CEO of your company and mapping and testing markets.

The CEO panelists were Doug Falk of Vita Therapeutics, Ric Hughen of Linshom (who also is a JHTV mentor-in-residence) and Kristen Valdes of b.well Connected Health.
