Judges & Mentors

The Johns Hopkins University Business Plan Competition recruits alumni, industry leaders, venture capitalists, and entrepreneurs to serve as judges and mentors in order to simulate the real-world process of soliciting start-up funds from early-stage investors and venture capitalists.

Mentors provide remote feedback for the first and second phases of the competition in one of four categories: Mobile Apps, Medical Technology and Life Sciences, Social Enterprise, and General Business.

Judges have the opportunity to evaluate pitches, select winners, and network with participants on the day of the competition on JHU’s Homewood Campus.

Interested individuals can serve as a mentor, a judge, or both.

If you are interested in being a judge and/or mentor for the 2019 JHU Business Plan Competition, please provide your information below.
