Equitech Tuesday #138: Baltimore Texas Hold 'Em

Baltimore Tech Community,

Every good card game requires a healthy amount of knowledge, a good strategy, and a little bit of luck. Fortunately for us, Baltimore has it all!

-- Kory Bailey, CEO of UpSurge Baltimore

The intellectual capital of the Baltimore MSA is second to none, with world-renowned institutions at the forefront of innovation like Johns Hopkins and University of Maryland Baltimore, two top-tier HBCUs in Morgan State and Coppin State, not to mention an award winning accelerator at the Towson StarTUp, strong mentorship for the Loyola Baltipreneurs, and the #1 producer of Black undergraduates that go on to earn a PhD in natural sciences and engineering at UMBC!

Our ecosystem is asset rich with innovators, founders, and talent!

Add that to the massive effort we just experienced across the ecosystem, using the EDA Tech Hubs Phase 2 proposal process to link these institutions to activities, programs, facilities, and opportunities to advance startups and commercialize technologies from the most diverse set of founders and companies the world has ever seen, all while leveraging the region’s rich assets for precision health technologies.

The Baltimore tech hub strategy is strong!

And this alignment of knowledge and strategy is coming at a time when we have unprecedented momentum in the tech ecosystem, solid commitments from the city and state and growing support from the private sector. Call it good luck or good timing but….

Baltimore is holding a full house!

Experience it for yourself. Register for the CIAA Tech Summit House on Friday, March 1st and the Financial Summit on March 2nd. Join us, and other members of the Maryland tech community, for the Equitech Texas Welcome Breakfast in Austin, Texas March 7th. And get ready for a run of exciting Equitech Tuesdays in March and April, featuring partnerships with Techstars, AIN Ventures, JHTV, MedTech Color and more!

It all starts tonight at Guilford Hall Brewery, 6-8pm at Equitech Tuesday… where the tech community gathers.
