Our Philosophy

Innovation Factory is the collaborative student-led organization with the mission to foster the entrepreneurial spirit throughout the Johns Hopkins community by facilitating access to learning, networking, and investment opportunities. 

We believe that by connecting students, alumni, faculty, and friends from Hopkins' nine schools, we can help develop a thriving ecosystem where ideas are shared, problems are solved, and  opportunity is cultivated.
