Betamore was co-founded in 2012 by Greg Cangialosi, Mike Brenner & Sean Lane. Their collective vision was to help to develop Baltimore into a global hub for entrepreneurship and education for the twenty first century.
Betamore was originally formed as a for-profit entity and after 2 years in operation, it became clear that changing to a non-profit (501(c)(3)) was the right direction to go in order to give Betamore the best chance to realize its full potential.
In January 2015 Betamore became a 501(c)(3) by merging with the former Greater Baltimore Technology Council. The co-founders of Betamore donated the facility and all of its assets to the 501(c)(3).
Through initial founding partnership grants by the Abell Foundation, France-Merrick Foundation, T-Rowe Price Foundation & DBED (Dept of Business & Economic Development), Betamore is now serving not only the community of its members in its physical campus, but the larger community in Baltimore and beyond.
