Everyone thinks of Silicon Valley as tech startup central–and, well, it is. But there are also plenty of tech-minded folks out there who can’t handle the high cost of living, and who instead flock to other cities. Other cities like, well, Baltimore.
We’ve been tracking the city’s burgeoning startup culture for a while now, and it’s nice to see that other people are finally catching on. This week, Business Insider named Baltimore #2 on its list of “9 hot startup cities that aren’t San Francisco or NYC.”
Business Insider cites the education-related tech companies that are cropping up all around the city. They might have also mentioned the fact that Johns Hopkins is making big investments in biotech startups, or how Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank has made it his mission to energize the city’s entrepreneur and startup scene through projects like the City Garage. In other words: yes, things are definitely starting to happen here. Thank you for noticing, world.
