The Scoop on Baltimore Entrepreneur Office Hours

You’ve seen it advertised, but what is it really like? Every month, for the past two years, we’ve hosted Baltimore Entrepreneur Office Hours at IMET. We partner with Mtech, who originally started Entrepreneur Office Hours in College Park, to bring this free resource to Baltimore.

The Attendees

Over 200 attendees  have participated so far. Most of our attendees are working on technology businesses or ideas. About half of our attendees come from local academic institutions — students, professors, staff. Biotechnology is a favorite and well-matched for our mentors, but we’re not exclusive.

The Mentors

Who are they? A great mix of experts, from service professionals to serial entrepreneurs to ecosystem
connectors. Have a question about IP? Gianna Arnold of Saul Ewing, LLP has you covered. Ken Malone can help you navigate non-dilutive funding options. And Virginia Crews and Martha Connolly will help you tap into the resources of the MD Department of Commerce and Mtech, respectively. That’s just a taste of some of the help at your fingertips.

The Format

Casual, but informative! If you sign up in advance, we can matchmake specifically. If you’re just starting out and don’t have specific questions, that’s okay, too. The goal is meeting one-on-one with a mentor, or with multiple mentors, for as long as you need to during the two-hour session. A productive session of musical chairs!

The Outcomes

Most attendees walk away with information, leads to follow up with for more information, and renewed energy for their next steps.
