We are excited to announce a partnership with Sagamore Ventures to bring Betamore to City Garage. We will be working together on a number of initiatives including increased educational programming, workforce development efforts, and a build-out of coworking space in Main Street of City Garage.
Through collaboration with The Foundery, the industrial-grade makerspace currently located at City Garage, this expansion will allow people to learn to code and weld under one roof. Our education programming will grow to include cutting-edge STEAM classes and workshops including coding, 3D printing, woodworking and welding that are unique to the location. This will create an optimal space for companies focused on product innovations to tackle their hardware, software, and business needs in one place.
The new coworking space will include 55-65 desks, two conference rooms, private offices and an open event space. Betamore’s original location at 1111 Light street will continue operations, and current Betamore members will be able to work at either space through a joint-membership between the two locations for a modest additional fee. The build-out of the space will begin in January 2017 and the design will be done by our incredible partners at The Verve Partnership.
The expansion enables us to offer entrepreneurs increased opportunities to launch and build successful businesses. Additionally, it aligns our mission with influential partners, who can help us move quickly and more effectively. Betamore will also become involved in the workforce development initiatives spearheaded by Sagamore Development Company, helping train and place employees in local technical and manufacturing positions. The more companies that we help succeed, the more Baltimore and our region will thrive. We are working to ensure that Baltimore continues gaining recognition as a destination for entrepreneurship.
We can’t wait to share more with you over the coming months as construction begins and new details arise. Stay tuned!
