Leave it to Yet Analytics CEO Shelly Blake-Plock to offer a mic drop moment at the Baltimore Innovation Awards.

Accepting the award for Tech Startup of the Year, he said, “Elon Musk thinks it’s all going to happen on Mars. We know it’s happening right here in Baltimore.” Then he walked offstage and out of the auditorium to much applause.

After nominations and more than 3,500 votes from the community, the fourth annual Baltimore Innovation Awards were handed out on Friday to close out Baltimore Innovation Week 2016 at the Maryland Institute College of Art’s Brown Center.

The big party, hosted by Technical.ly Baltimore and Innovation Village, featured innovative art, along with new Baltimore-made games and VR. We also took so many selfies with each of the winners onstage.

Here are the winners:

  • Entrepreneur of the Year: Jasmine Simms, for her work helping other mothers start businesses with Moms as Entrepreneurs and leadership of Scrub Nail Boutique.
