Four startups from Baltimore are in the running to win investment prizes of $100,000 as part of the second annual InvestMaryland Challenge.
As Technical.ly Baltimore reported, the business competition for early-stage startups from Maryland and the U.S. will award four grand prizes of $100,000 to four startups competing in four categories: cybersecurity, general industry, IT hardware and software, and life sciences.
The four Baltimore finalists:
- Cybersecurity startup ZeroFox (formerly Riskive)
- Cybersecurity startup Light Point Security, which advanced far in the Wall Street Journal‘s inaugural Startup of the Year competition
- Adtech startup Staq, where cofounder Mike Subelsky recently hired four Ruby programmers the startup trained
- B2B online food marketplace Foodem, which was one of eight finalists in the 2013 Pitch Across Maryland challenge
- Also, DinnerTime, which Technical.ly Baltimore wrote about in December 2013, is a finalist. Its headquarters is just outside the city in Lutherville, but DinnerTime cofounder Charlie Moore tells us “almost everyone on the team” is a Baltimore city resident.
According to the Baltimore Business Journal, almost 260 applicants applied for the competition.
