Social Innovation Lab Request for Applications

The Social Innovation Lab (SIL) at Johns Hopkins University accelerates ventures that create change and opportunity in Baltimore and beyond. SIL does this by providing funding, mentorship, office space and workshops, to help innovative non-profits, mission-driven companies and disruptive technologies develop and grow into thriving, sustainable ventures that make a measurable impact.

SIL is seeking driven, altruistic applicants – people who see a problem, are thoughtful and deliberate at developing a potential solution rooted in extensive research or experience, and are willing to exert extraordinary dedication to make the potential solution a reality.

Applications will be evaluated based on leadership ability of the applicants, boldness and originality of the venture, traction/accomplishments to-date, financial feasibility and sustainability and more.

Due Monday, October 3, 2016 at noon.
