FastForward U

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 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.
