Dimitri Joined the Hopkins Biotech Network (HBN) EMP team early in 2017 where he assisted with planning HBN/EMP sponsored events. As an enthusiastic entrepreneur, Dimitri identified the strength in forming partnerships. Through his position as a student leader at the Johns Hopkins Fast Forward U (FFU), Dimitri established a collaboration between EMP and FFU. The collaboration goal is to better serve the Hopkins entrepreneurial community as part of the EMP goals. As the director of Entrepreneurship, I strive to increase the resources available for the Hopkins community to pursue their entrepreneurial quests. To do so, we will work to arrange speaker panels, networking events and info sessions for individuals in any startup state. We will increase collaboration and eventually create a portfolio of successes.
