Courtesy Citybizlist — Our last two columns have suggested that it’s worth understanding Baltimore’s innovation community and the broader impact it’s having on our region. Well… there is no better time than this week to get a first hand sense of what’s going on in Greater Baltimore’s innovation community.
Starting on September 20th and ending next Friday, there are a series of events, programs and opportunities to experience Baltimore’s community on what is called Baltimore Innovation Week.
As the promoters suggest, Baltimore Innovation Week “is a week-long celebration of technology and innovation in Baltimore.” They continue, “the annual week of events is intended to grow the impact of this innovative region through programming focused on technology, collaboration and improving Baltimore.”
The week comprises dozens of events of varying subjects, all designed to celebrate and advance Baltimore’s innovation community. Be brave: check out an event. I suspect you will feel like you stepped into another world, right here in Baltimore, unseen by many in the general business community, but vibrant, growing and underscoring how increasingly important this creative sector is to our future.
