Baltimore’s edtech ‘boom’ just now getting started [Links]

"Baltimore is going to become a larger hub for education technology companies as students turn more to online courses and school systems look to mine reams of data to better measure student outcomes."

Baltimore’s ed-tech boom may just be getting started [Baltimore Business Journal]: “Baltimore is going to become a larger hub for education technology companies as students turn more to online courses and school systems look to mine reams of data to better measure student outcomes.”

Cities don’t need Congress to move forward: a conversation with the mayor of Baltimore [Washington Post]: “Baltimore’s a blue-collar city, has a manufacturing history. And because of where we’re sitting, we’re poised to take advantage of the growth in manufacturing. I’ve been working with the conference of mayors and looking for ways to connect with those opportunities and employers that are looking to locate and have a ready-to-work workforce.”

Three growing companies to watch [Bmore Media]: “‘The number and quality of startups is increasing. You can almost feel the momentum,’ says Greg Cangialosi, managing member of startup funding group Baltimore Angels and Federal Hill incubator Betamore.
