The Work to Come

Of note, a lot of startup and founder data – from employee counts to founder demographics – is not well captured by PitchBook or any other source. But this information is vital to understanding our ecosystem, creating equitable structures, programs and systems, and advancing the Equitech vision. Over the next year, UpSurge will partner with local Entrepreneur Support Organizations (ESOs) to capture a more comprehensive view of startups and founders across the Baltimore MSA.
