Mindgrub Technologies completes move to Locust Point [Startup Roundup]

This is the Startup Roundup. Every Wednesday morning, Technical.ly Baltimore will put together the smaller pieces that make up our startup ecosystem.

who’s getting funded?

Protenus, based in Nottingham, has raised $80,000 in equity, according to SEC filings. Robert Lord, cofounder of the health data security startup, spoke at the DreamIt Health Baltimore Demo Day earlier this year.

Everseat, a Mt. Washington firm, recently raised $800,000 in angel funding, the Baltimore Business Journal reports. The firm’s app, currently available on iOS, allows professionals like hair stylists to fill last-minute cancellations with customers in search of last-minute appointments.

who’s making moves?

Six startups are set to present at AccelerateBaltimore‘s Demo Day Thursday. The third AccelerateBaltimore class includes a data mining and patent search firm, a mobile dating app and a nutrition tracking app. The three-month accelerator program includes $25,000 in seed funding for all participating startups.

Attorney Mike Baader is leaving his post as head of Venable’s Baltimore offices for global venture capital firm (and Venable client) Greenspring Associates as a partner and general counsel, Baltimore Citybizlist reports. Baader will stay on for several more months at Venable, where Courtney Capute has been named his successor.

In April, car-rental firm Zipcar backed out of its Baltimore offices on North Charles Street in Mount Vernon. They’re now parked in Fells Point at 700 S. Caroline St.

Easy WebContent Presenter has a new look and a new name. This week, the Frederick startup was rechristened Visme. As Technically Baltimore reported, their namesake web-based presentation and animation app entered public beta in April 2013.

Web, mobile and gaming agency Mindgrub Technologies completed its move into Baltimore city. The 6-year-old company, previously headquartered in Catonsville, now employs its roughly 50 full-time employees in a 13,000-square-foot office in Locust Point. As founder Todd Marks told Technical.ly Baltimore in March, “Catonsville just couldn’t hold us.”
