Meet TCO Labs, Inc.

We’re a 501(c)(3) non-profit focused on building a stronger entrepreneurial ecosystem at the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus and getting students involved in Baltimore’s innovation community.

 By hosting events, fostering community, and connecting students to resources throughout the city, we aim to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs and keep their companies within Baltimore.


Technology drives change in the modern world. We aim to be a part of that change.


Progress revolves around the generation of ideas. We eliminate the box that most people attempt to think outside of.


What did Bill Gates have in common with the Beatles? Everyone deserves the chance – we give it to the right people.


Call it a think tank or a creative space, we’re a lab determined to fuel innovation and build ties across boundaries.

Our Mission

At TCO Labs, we believe in the power of ideas. A student-run non-profit at Johns Hopkins University, we are on a mission to inspire the doers and the makers, stimulate the creative process, and foster undergraduate interdisciplinary entrepreneurship. We aim to do this by building a network of pioneers from universities and startups across the nation and giving it a unified platform right here at Homewood campus. We intend to forge an environment in which ideas are sparked, innovation leaps into overdrive, and groundbreaking products are born.

We're The Crazy Ones

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
