A Better Baltimore through technology. That’s the call to action led by Technical.ly Baltimore, a news organization and community builder that has covered technology issues in the Baltimore region since 2012.
Our focus is on building community through technology in the following ways:
- attracting and retaining jobs through entrepreneurship, business and the creative economy,
- increasing access and education for low-income and marginalized residents,
- and making government more transparent and efficient.
We aim to connect a broad and diverse technology community that works together to organize the annual Baltimore Innovation Week, an open calendar of events celebrating innovation in Baltimore each September. We also organize the monthly BmoreTech meetup.
