If you feel like you keep hearing about tech companies and innovation that’s coming out of Baltimore – from Groupon and AOL buying startups here to big new makerspaces — but want to find out who exactly is involved and what they’re up to, a weeklong series of events provides an entry point.
Baltimore Innovation Week is back for its fifth year of spotlighting startups and the wider tech community that is growing in Baltimore. It’s organized by Technical.ly where, full disclosure, I am also a reporter in Baltimore. The news and events organization puts together conference days, an awards ceremony and other events throughout the week. Leaders of the community also add lots more events to the calendar, pushing the total number on the calendar to nearly 70.
Since the event is five years old, here’s a look at a handful of events:
Media Conference Professionals in data, marketing, PR and, yes, media get together to discuss trends at the Creative Alliance on Sept. 27.
BmoreOpen, a look at building diverse and inclusive teams at University of Baltimore’s law center on Sept. 27.
Beta City A big gathering of the Baltimore tech community at City Garage in Port Covington, with startup demos, a pitch competition and more. The Sept. 29 event is presented by tech incubator Betamore and Kevin Planks’ investment company, Sagamore Ventures.
Lasers and Drones: Capturing the World in 3D A pair of Owings Mills-based companies show off 3D scanning and drone technology at the Baltimore Museum of Industry on Sept. 28.
Baltimore Innovation Awards A celebration of the tech community at MICA’s Brown Center.
