Sparking Growth: The Importance of Entrepreneurs to Baltimore

The FastForward and City Garage innovation hubs are helping change the perception and economic standing of Baltimore by providing the city’s entrepreneurs with the resources they need to succeed. Baltimore has significant advantages, such as its affordability, accessibility and educational feeder system, and innovation hubs like FastForward help entrepreneurs leverage those strengths in hopes that their success will also be Baltimore’s.

Johns Hopkins University President Ron Daniels calls the university’s efforts to build a fertile innovation ecosystem and the growth that Johns Hopkins has seen in entrepreneurship a “virtuous cycle.”

“We built these facilities. We provided these amenities. We’ve raised the consciousness within the university. We’ve provided great technical support,” Daniels says. “That in turn has unleashed more creativity.”
