Full disclosure: Betamore cofounder Mike Brenner is a partner with Technical.ly Baltimore, which works on occasion from the Federal Hill incubator.

Ten edtech entrepreneurs from Ireland and Northern Ireland visited Baltimore on Monday in what was the first leg of a multi-city tour through the U.S.

The entrepreneurs will also visit Seattle, New York City and Boston as part of two-week exchange called EdTech Ireland, a program designed to give the group of 10 a general overview of how technology and new digital tools are changing STEM education in U.S.  The program is from the Cultural Vistas, a New York based nonprofit that also has offices in Columbia, Maryland, Washington D.C. and Berlin and organizes cultural exchanges with a professional focus.

A stop in Washington, D.C., to visit the 1776 incubator took place during the day. Stops in Baltimore included a tour of the Betamore incubator in Federal Hill in the evening and a happy hour with local edtech entrepreneurs, including Jess Gartner, the founder of Allovue and a graduate of the AccelerateBaltimore incubator.
