FastForward U Homewood

Our innovation hub is a co-working, meeting, and event space all-in-one, located in Remington, across the street from R. House, and a short walk from the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus. We bring people together for creative problem-solving, facilitating student entrepreneurs exploring their extracurricular areas of interest.

Members of the Hotdesk or Accelerator programs have access to dedicated facilities, every day of the week. Additionally, our space offers co-working areas, meeting rooms, and event space for use by any student, faculty, or staff working on or supporting innovation. With over 10,000-square-feet, we facilitate collaborative spaces large and small. This includes a 2,000-square-foot Makerspace run by the Whiting School of Engineering, complete with high-tech tools for crafting and prototyping.
