As 2013 comes to a close, I want to take a moment and say thank you to everyone that made our first year an amazing one. Whether you became a member, participated in a workshop, hosted office hours, enrolled in a course, reserved a desk, sponsored an event, or were one of our founding partners – Thank You.
From our infographic above, you can see that 2013 was incredibly eventful. The stats that really stand out to us are the 26 new companies that were formed and the 76 jobs that were created; this is real economic development.
Now that 2014 is within arm’s reach, I hope that you will continue to find ways to benefit from us and work with us. Here are some ways to get plugged in for next year:
- For those of you who have been working from home, get a membership, meet your new coworkers, explore your new downtown office.
- For those of you who want to start/change/further your career, come take a class or course and learn what it takes to build something new.
- For those of you who want to give back by supporting our startups and current members, get in touch with me and let’s find a way to work together in 2014.
I look forward to meeting those that will forever brand their companies as “Founded in Baltimore in 2014.”
Wishing you a warm and prosperous New Year.
Co-Founder & CEO
