Brian Stansky is the new director of Johns Hopkins’ incubator program for startups, according to a letter sent to colleagues from Christy Wyskiel, senior advisor to the president of Johns Hopkins on entrepreneurship and tech transfer. Nina Urban was appointed as associate director of the program.
Stansky served as interim director of the program for the last two months. He previously worked for 13 years as managing director at Integral Capital Partners, and oversaw health, sciences and media/telecom portfolios at T. Rowe Price.
Urban is the former CEO of General Genomics, a spinout company from Georgia Tech in Atlanta. She previously worked in various roles with Georgia Tech’s incubator. Urban earned her bachelor’s degree at Johns Hopkins.
The appointments come as the university seeks to expand its resources available to early-stage companies. FastForward runs spaces for mostly health and life sciences-focused startups on the university’s Homewood Campus, and near Hopkins Medical Center in East Baltimore. FastForward East is planning to move to a bigger location in the JHU Science and Technology Park.-30-
