Gov. O'Malley Joins Startup MD Tour …

Gov. Martin J. O’Malley joins Startup Maryland Board Co-Chairs Michael Binko and Julie Lenzer Kirk for a personal conversation aboard the Pitch Across Maryland Tour bus.


In fact, to show his support and solidarity for the entrepreneurs who are “pitching” their businesses during the state-wide tour, Gov. O’Malley graciously agreed to jump on “the host seat” to deliver his own pitch on the topic of _Invest_Maryland.


Gov. O’Malley then joined the Startup Maryland team and representatives from TEDCO, Baltimore County, Howard County and DBED for the ride to UMBC’s BWTech Research Center and Incubator campus.


Another summary video from The Daily Record (the leading daily business news outlet in MD) highlighted the diversity of innovation and highlights from the first half of the Pitch Across Maryland Tour.

There UMBC’s Ellen Hemmerly was joined by RMI’s Mike Galiazzo, and Miles and Stockbridge’s Bob Brennan as co-hosts for the 12th Tour Stop. Eight entrepreneurs then joined the team on the bus to record video “pitches” of their businesses and innovations.

These pitches will be added to the others collected during the Pitch Across Maryland tour and entered into the online Competition which continues into October and November.
