UB’s Women Entrepreneurs Leading the Way in Baltimore


A packed auditorium at the University of Baltimore witnessed the 2017 Leonard and Phyllis Attman Competitive Business Prize presentation by UB students and young alumni last week. While the ideas for start-ups and expansions to existing small businesses ranged far and wide – everything from an innovative crab shelling tool to a high-end watchmaking company – an interesting theme resonated throughout the evening: More women than ever before are becoming entrepreneurs. Walls are breaking down. And cities like Baltimore are leading the way and reaping the benefits.
