Equitech in Baltimore | Featuring UpSurge and Techstars

UpSurge Baltimore is working to propel Baltimore into the top tier of innovation cities, but wants to take a uniquely Baltimore approach. The driving vision: to become the first Equitech city.

One of UpSurge’s initial investments is launching a Techstars Equitech Accelerator in Baltimore, and the first cohort arrives early next month.

Join UpSurge CEO Jamie McDonald and the managing director of the Techstars Equitech Accelerator, Monica Wheat, to learn more about the vision and how Techstars is gearing up in Baltimore.
