Today marks the grand opening of Johns Hopkins University‘s new accelerator, FastForward.

Launched by the school’s Whiting School of Engineering, FastForward will be the place where ideas borne of research can be commercialized into money-making businesses (a practice known as tech transfer).

The accelerator is housed inside the Stieff Silver building just off the Jones Falls trail heading toward Druid Hill Park.

Clear Guide Medical, one company already housed within FastForward, received the life sciences award at this month’s Incubator Company of the Year awards.
