On this week’s episode of the Talking Tech Transfer podcast, we welcome Christy Wyskiel, the executive director of Johns Hopkins Technology Ventures (JHTV), the tech transfer office of Johns Hopkins University, and the senior adviser to Johns Hopkins’ president for innovation and entrepreneurship.

She reveals why she is so passionate about the Baltimore ecosystem that she goes above and beyond her day job and she talks about why having run her own startups gives her a real appreciation for the hardships of first-time entrepreneurs.

She also discusses what JHTV is doing to support diversity, why the Johns Hopkins Covid Dashboard is a true example of research for the world and why JHTV has a clause in its licensing agreements that requires spinouts to inform the office of every funding round they raise.
