Who’s getting funded?

OpiaTalk, an ecommerce startup incubating in Federal Hill’s Betamore, landed $425,000 in debt from a $750,000 offering, according to a SEC filing. Earlier this year, the company debuted with its first client, Skype.

 

Who’s making moves?

QuotePie is joining Anne Arundel County’s Chesapeake Innovation Center as a Collaboration Hub member. The company operates an online marketplace allowing business owners to find property and casualty insurance agents. Think LendingTree meets the Maryland Health Connection.

DreamIt Health is planning a move to permanent offices in Baltimore, as Technical.ly Baltimore reported.

IronNet Cybersecurity is moving from Washington, D.C., to Maple Lawn in Howard County, county officials there announced. The firm’s CEO is no stranger to Howard County — former National Security Agency chief Gen. Keith Alexander. The longest-serving NSA head, Alexander retired in March after a tenure that included time as the founding general of U.S. Cyber Command.
