Rise of the rest, indeed.

Entrepreneur Magazine put Baltimore close to the top of a list of “9 Hot Startup Cities That Aren’t San Francisco or New York.” Charm City came in at No. 2.

“There’s a quiet revolution happening in Baltimore,” begins the city’s blurb.

The feature spotlights “Education” as the industry the city is best known for, which means edtech. Citelighter and its Propel Baltimore investment from TEDCO get props as the emerging spots to watch, while Laureate Education is cited as the forbearer to the current scene. February’s well-attended EdSurge Baltimore Tech For Schools summit also comes in for praise.

“Baltimore teachers work with diverse student populations and are entrepreneur-friendly, willing to test out new tech and ideas in classrooms,” the feature states.
