Startup Maryland is a regional initiative launched from the Startup America Partnership. This peer-driven movement, focused on high-growth ventures, strives to connect innovation communities and recognize the importance of founding entrepreneurs, as well as start-up, ramp-up and speed-up companies to Maryland's innovation economy. Startup Maryland rallies entrepreneurs, supporters and other innovation stakeholders around four main initiatives:

  • connection 
  • celebration 
  • coaching 
  • capital
