Students and founders: FREE discount code for #biw14 Business Day

We want more college entrepreneurs involved in the Baltimore tech community, so we’re offering free tickets to the Business Track Day of Baltimore Innovation Week.

State of Startups roundtable featuring, from left, Figure53 founder Chris Ashworth, Allouve founder Jess Gartner, Camden Partners managing partner David Warnock, Wasabi Ventures managing partner TK Kuegler, moderated by Betamore cofounder Mike Brenner, held at the BioPark during Baltimore Innovation Week 2013.

As part of an ongoing effort to get more university students involved in the Baltimore tech community, we’re offering free tickets to young entrepreneurs for the entire Business Track Day of Baltimore Innovation Week.

Use the code “studentBIWbusiness” to receive free tickets to any of our Business Day events on Tuesday, Sept. 16.

We also are stoked to say that founders of early-stage tech-related businesses can also come to Business Day free, thanks to our sponsors for the day: TEDCO, the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development, BackForty and Saul Ewing— in addition to our Access sponsor Abell Foundation. Technically speaking, that’s founders of companies that have fewer than 30 employees, are less than three-years-old and are involved in the IT, web and related scalable fields.

Use the code “founderBIWbusiness” to  receive free tickets.

It’s an $85 value, but these free tickets are limited.

Business Track Day events include:

  • Entrepreneur Boot CampExperts will provide building blocks for the foundational, legal elements of intellectual property, trademarking, litigation, accounting and more.
  • Regional Investor Roundtable: Join us at this informative lunch panel to hear from venture capitalists about making investments in Baltimore and elsewhere along the Northeast Corridor.
  • #Failfest: A Conversations in Failure: If we want businesses that win big, we can’t be afraid of big losses. Hear from some of the region’s most successful entrepreneurs, both in technology and out, about what they learned from their mistakes.

Please note: Students must present a valid student ID when checking into these events. No admission will be granted without it.
