2018 Business Plan Competition
Apr 27 all-day
2018 Business Plan Competition @ Charles Commons

The nationally recognized Johns Hopkins University Business Plan Competition, hosted by the Center for Leadership Education, provides an opportunity for students to take a novel idea or innovative technology and develop a business plan based around it. Starting with a concept, students build an understanding of their target market, analyze potential competitors, craft an effective market entry strategy, and present their plans to industry professionals and venture capitalists. This highly popular event, held on the Homewood campus, draws teams from all divisions of the university.

The 19th Annual Johns Hopkins University Business Plan Competition, sponsored by the Center for Leadership Education, will run from February through April 27, 2018.

Inaugural Professorial Lecture: Joel Bader
May 7 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Inaugural Professorial Lecture: Joel Bader @ Mason Hall Auditorium

Joel Bader will deliver a lecture as part of the Don P. Giddens Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series. Bader is a professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering.

Stopping Cancer Metastasis

Cancer’s lethality comes not from the growth of the original tumor, but from the spread of the disease to distant sites in the body. Professor Bader will describe ongoing work to dissect the gene and protein networks driving cancer metastasis, suggesting targets for therapeutic intervention.


The Don P. Giddens Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series began in 1993 as a way to honor newly promoted full professors. Professor Giddens, originator of the series, served as the fifth dean of Engineering at Johns Hopkins.
