Network of Entrepreneurs in Science and Technology (NEST)
These friends of JHTV provide a particular perspective or expertise that can be of value to an inventor/group of inventors and volunteer to ad-hoc engagements. Past consultations have informed major development and business decisions and occasionally lead to long-term relationships. Members of the NEST have also participated as speakers, judges and donors – all critical contributions to our thriving campus ecosystem.
