More than 2,000 people voted in the third annual Baltimore Innovation Awards.

First you nominated them. Then you voted on them. Then last night at the evening reception of Beta City we announced them — giving out actual awards made by Fab Lab Baltimore — inside the not-yet-launched massive City Garage makerspace.

Beta City, led by the Betamore incubator with Sagamore Ventures, Technical.ly and Startup Maryland, was a signature event of Baltimore Innovation Week 2015, which Technical.ly organizes. In addition to the dozen Innovation Awards voted online, Betamore gave two curated awards.
