WHO’S MAKING MOVES

Baltimore-based Social Solutions acquired an Austin-based company that helps nonprofits streamline work. The deal to acquire Community TechKnowledge brings 65 people onboard at Social Solutions, which already employs 215 people. About 160 employees are based in Social Solutions’ office in Middle River.

212 Communications named Bill Atkinson as partner. A former Baltimore Sun business columnist and PR exec at New York-based Weber Shandwick, Atkinson is being brought on to help grow the Fleet Street PR firm, said founding partner Erica Mechlinski.

Advance Maryland is accepting applications. The “economic gardening” program run by the state and EAGB is designed to help businesses by connecting owners with research specialists. It’s open to companies with $1-$50 million in annual revenue.

OrderUp continues to add new features to its food delivery app. The Canton-based company launched Order for Later, which allows customers to schedule a delivery. OrderUp hints that it’s an ideal feature for smaller companies planning a team lunch.

WHO’S GETTING BUZZ

Baltimore topped a list of “surprising tech hubs” that was put together by, uh, SelfStorage.com. The list makers applied some tortured wordplay using “harbor.” Statistically, however, they relied on federal data that was previously crunched by the Oregon Office of Economic Analysis. It places Charm City 9th overall among tech hubs, and cites another recent CBRE report that said the area is gaining tech talent.
