Loyola University Maryland’s Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship (CI&E) will host the inaugural Baltipreneurs Ecosystem Night on Wednesday, Jan. 27, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. via Zoom. The event is sponsored by a grant from Maryland Business Innovation Association and Maryland Technology Development Corporation and will feature local entrepreneur Andrew Suggs, founder and CEO of Live Chair Health, as the keynote speaker.
The goal of this new initiative is to cross-pollinate innovation between those involved in Loyola’s Baltipreneur Accelerator Program and the local entrepreneurial ecosystem, while providing additional specialized services for a select group of ventures to support their success.
Interested participants may register for the Zoom keynote and Q&A with Mr. Suggs online. The first 50 RSVPs will have live access to the video Q&A, while the remainder of participants may submit questions via chat.
About the Baltipreneur Accelerator Program
The Baltipreneur Accelerator Program provides funding, training, and mentorship for innovators in Baltimore, including members of the Baltimore community, as well as Loyola students, faculty, and staff, with a preference for those in groups underrepresented in entrepreneurship. The program experienced a 34% increase in applications growing from 8 to 13 ventures since launching last year, and the top-ranked ventures in last year’s inaugural group have already gone on to meet significant milestones, including quadrupling their client portfolio, launching product in grocery stores, joining area incubators, and adding critical board members.
