As the closing event to Business Track Day of Baltimore Innovation Week '19, Startup Grind Baltimore will feature a panel of former athletes who have gone on to start their own businesses. Learn what made them decide to go the entrepreneur route, rather then just "getting a job". Discover how athletics prepared them for the rigors of owning their own business as well as the difficulties they faced as they made the transition. Whether you are an athlete or not, be inspired that even if and when life changes, you can still follow your dream. 

We are also offering FREE headshots, courtesy of Smile Solutions of Baltimore.
