Dan Senor, author of the best-seller Start-Up Nation and an adjunct fellow for Middle Eastern Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, will offer a keynote address for  a provocative and insightful discussion, "Driving Baltimore's Entrepreneurial Ecosystem," on Wednesday, April 25 at 7 p.m. in the University of Baltimore Student Center, 21 W. Mt. Royal Ave. Sponsored by UB's Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the event will focus on the various ways that Baltimore can remake itself as a hub for entrepreneurial businesses, support services for small-business and start-ups, and organizations that foster an entrepreneurial culture. In addition to the keynote, a panel of experts will lead a discussion on Baltimore’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. "Driving Baltimore's Entrpreneurial Ecosystem" is free and open to the public, although an R.S.V.P. is required; sign-up details below.

Senor specializes in Middle East and Persian Gulf geopolitics, security, and economics, and comments frequently in the national media on these topics as well as on the role of foreign policy in domestic United States politics, U.S. public diplomacy and so on.

Start-Up Nation examines the factors that have made Israel, a nation of only 7.1 million inhabitants and a global flashpoint, a first-rate producer of start-up companies—more than some larger, less-threatened nations like Japan, China, India, Korea, Canada and the UK.

Following his keynote talk, Senor will be joined by:

  • Barry Bogage, executive director of the Maryland/Israel Development Center
  • David Lingelbach, assistant professor of entrepreneurship in the University of Baltimore’s Merrick School of Business
  • Tom Loveland, CEO of Mind Over Machines
  • Rob Rosenbaum, executive director of the Maryland Technology Development Corporation
