Johns Hopkins launches new biotech entrepreneurship program

Here’s a bleak number for you:  95 percent of biopharmaceutical companies fail. According to Johns Hopkins’ Lynn Johnson Langer, that’s in part because, traditionally, “business people and scientists didn’t speak each other’s language. They didn’t always respect each other.”

Buying Local Blooms in Floral Industry

0 Written by: | Tuesday, May 15, 2012 1:00pm

Courtesy of Bmore Media – Combine an entrepreneurial spirit, a love of floral design, and a passion for the community. Local Color Flowers, a floral design business in Hampden, is the result.

Owner Ellen Frost took these seemingly disparate elements and pieced them together to create a floral business.

Most shops import flowers and ship them thousands of miles in non-biodegradable material. Colombia and Ecuador accounted for 90-98 percent of all roses, carnations, and chrysanthemums sold in the United States last year, according to All America-Phillip’s Flower Shops. By the time they reach the store, “fresh” bouquets are days old. Read More →

Baltimore Tech Conference Celebrates Failure?

Courtesy of Citybizlist – The tarpaulin was on the field at Clarence “Du” Burns Arena. The MC wore a Meh t-shirt. The enforcer brandished an accordion. A Fail-Off competition ensued. And the audience was on the field, not in the stands.

We are talking about the Bmore Fail conference, organized by the gb.tc to demystify the idea that failing in entrepreneurial endeavors is a natural evolution of the process … and not something to be feared.

The Friday event drew approximately 300 participants from around Baltimore and featured a diverse panel of presenters: Dr. Paul Foster, Internal Medicine Program director at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center; Tracy Gosson, president of Sagesse; Rodney Foxworth, board member of Social Enterprise Alliance, Maryland chapter and advisory board member of Digital Harbor Foundation; and others.

The brainchild of gb.tc Chief Instigator Jason Hardebeck, Bmore Fail focused on outing failures in a public way.

Hardebeck’s idea – leveraged from an Ignites presentation by Bizelo founder Ron Schmelzer (who plays a mean accordion, incidentally) – is about cultivating a more liberated mentality when it comes to entrepreneurship in Baltimore.

– Fail, learn, and move on

– Success is not a series of consecutive victories … it includes failure

– Fail, learn, pivot, and go forward …
