About this event

2018 is moving along and so is Startup Grind Baltimore. Our February event is the perfect opportunity to check out the newly formed University of Maryland, Baltimore's Graduate Research Innovation District (The Grid).

Startup Pitch Practice

We're going to be adding a new component to our event; a time for startups to practice their pitch in front of a crowd. It's a great opportunity to show off your business, hone your pitch skills and get valuable feedback from the community.
