3. UpSurge Investments will invest directly in companies that build the Baltimore ecosystem. First up: we’re sponsoring a new Techstars Accelerator in Baltimore. Why Techstars? They’re the leading city ecosystem accelerator in the world. Ten new companies each year will be selected from 1000s of applicants to live, work, play and grow in Baltimore. And we’ll use the Techstars megaphone to tell Baltimore’s story to an innovation community of more than 17,000 investors, entrepreneurs and thought leaders.
How we’re supporting companies’ successes:
We’re looking across the country to educate and connect investors to opportunities in Baltimore.
We’re developing approaches to grow from inside and outside Baltimore.
We’re focused on narratives that create awareness and excitement, and shift the perception of Baltimore.
In Baltimore and across the country, we’re connecting startups, corporations, incubators, accelerators and funders.
