When serial entrepreneur Danny BenDebba thinks of entrepreneurship in Baltimore, he focuses on something more than building new companies.

“There’s an effort to be an entrepreneur, but also to help the area around us,” he says.

That’s the mission of his organization DreamUp Baltimore, which works to cultivate entrepreneurship, collaboration and community in Baltimore city.

DreamUp hosted its fall fiesta Tuesday evening at El Rodeo Tex-Mex restaurant in Towson.
