Maryland Innovation Center

Join 200+ mid-Maryland entrepreneurship movers, shakers, candle-stick makers, investors, and young companies startups, as we celebrate our return to in-person events with our Grand Welcome Back Party and 4th STARTUP SHOWCASE.

It’s time we help each other get inspired, reconnect with old friends, and make new ones. Kick back, let your hair down, take a load off, and enjoy great food and drink.

One of our core values is helping to make connections and expose the incredible entrepreneurs, founders, startups, entrepreneurs. teams, and companies who are helping to change the world one entrepreneur at a time.  They bust their tails day in and day but get very little exposure or publicity to the region’s resources.

This is their opportunity to spread the word about what they do and the great things they’re building. No this is not a pitch competition. This is an opportunity to mix and mingle without that pressure.

What’s in it for the startups?

  • Exposure to the local, national, and international global Startup Grind and entrepreneurship ecosystem.
  • Opportunities to demo their products and services in a relaxed fun environment.
  • 10 minutes of fame as they get to tell their story, share their journey, and tell us what they need and how we can help.
  • Publicity. They will be featured on our chapter website and newsletters, all of our marketing initiatives, announcements through our global communications channels, just to name a few.

Come out, meet and get to know them, watch their demos, and listen to what they need and how you might be able to assist.

Who knows one of them could be your next big investment and exit, a new Maryland Unicorn, or your best client.
