Should suburban Baltimore have its own tech meetup? [Startup Roundup]

An informal Facebook poll says yes. Also, ZeroFOX wins cool points and Profectus Biosciences raises big money. That and more in this week's Startup Roundup.

Trade magazine CRN named ZeroFOX one of its 25 coolest emerging tech vendors for 2014 last week. The Federal Hill cybersecurity risk monitoring firm is included in CRN’s August issue.

Dennis O’Neil, president of ONeil Interactive in Hunt Valley, wonders out loud about suburban meetups on the Baltimore Tech Facebook group: “I suspect that there are other county dwellers eager to talk tech and am considering opening up our office on [York Road] once a month for an informal tech meetup.” Well?

DreamIt Health Philadelphia’s second class of startups includes Baltimore biotech firm Tissue Analytics, Philly reports. It is one of nine companies joining the accelerator this year.


Who’s getting funded?

Johns Hopkins University faculty will teach short cybersecurity courses at Hagerstown Community College, with help from a grant from the National Science Foundation, The Herald-Mail reports. The grant will allow the college to collaborate with Hopkins’s Information Security Institute for mentoring and research work, according to the report.

Biotech startup Profectus Biosciences was awarded two grants, totaling $3.5 million, from the National Institutes of Health, the company announced in a release. In addition, the vaccine development company raised more than $7.5 million in equity, according to an SEC filing.
