Our Success Stories

“I love having my business in Baltimore City because I know it has a direct impact on the community and I have partnerships with organizations here that help me make that impact.”

Trevor Pryce

"I think the big attraction in Baltimore is that it’s a field of dreams. If you’re thinking about coming here, you will find more support than anywhere else because the ‘want to’ is so high. This city is always looking for the next great thing."

Ayeshah Abuelhiga

"Baltimore is a great place to have a business because real estate is affordable and steady. If you're a small business and you're looking to grow, you need a stable environment where you know what your rent is going to be and what the labor market looks like."

Anders Jones

"What struck me about Baltimore was the raw talent, cost of living and innovation. There is a ton of technical talent here. If you look into a place like Hopkins, it’s filing something like 500 patents a year. There are very few organizations in Silicon Valley that are innovating at that level. People always think Silicon Valley is this hub of innovation, but actually, the very early stages of the innovation often happen outside of Silicon Valley. Baltimore happens to be one of those places."

What I love about Baltimore is, it's a space where, if you want to make an impact, you just have to roll up your sleeves and do it. As long as you're authentic, people will embrace you and support you. I felt that from day one. Baltimore has tremendous assets, we're in the middle of Fort Meade and Aberdeen Proving Grounds and have world-class education, financial and healthcare institutions.
