Nominate Community Leaders for Beta City Awards!

On September 28, 2017, Betamore will recognize three individuals, based on their contributions to Baltimore’s entrepreneurial community.

Nominations close after September 8th.

The SILO BREAKER award is given annually to a member of the Betamore community that is actively working to break down silos between people and institutions in Baltimore. They connect people with each other and with programs that matter to them. The Silo Breaker award winners demonstrate efforts that are a critical component of what Betamore seeks to do — illuminate the collective wisdom and experience of our community for the purpose of entrepreneurship.
The BETA (LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT) award recognizes individuals who, over their lifetime, have deeply impacted our local entrepreneurial community. In software development, a beta test is the second phase of software testing in which a sampling of the intended audience interacts with a product. Beta award winners challenge us to reframe failures and continually pursue excellence.
The RISE award recognizes an individual that embodies the spirit of entrepreneurship in Baltimore. When not working tirelessly on their own endeavors, this emerging entrepreneur can be found supporting others and encouraging us to rise to our full potential. This entrepreneur serves as a role model to other entrepreneurs locally and globally.

Nominations are due by 5:00PM on September 8, 2017
