FastForward’s goal is to help early ventures realize their potential and bring life-changing technologies to market. As part of this ongoing mission, we seek relationships with sponsors who share our passion for advancing and commercializing innovations derived at Johns Hopkins and elsewhere.

FastForward’s individual and corporate sponsors contribute valuable program support and share our vision for building a stronger local innovation economy that will develop and keep promising startups in Baltimore.

Our sponsors engage with FastForward entrepreneurs in variety of avenues, including office hours, professional seminars, one-on-one mentorship and happy hours. These programs, events and workshops encourage valuable personal interactions with entrepreneurs and create the type of collaborative communities in which new ventures thrive.

Sponsors of FastForward receive a number of benefits including immersion in the FastForward ecosystem, promotion and recognition of the relationship in various forms, access to FastForward facilities, invitations to special events and more.
