It’s a new year, which brings a fresh look at things. At Technical.ly Baltimore, it also means we’re making a new realLIST. The roundup of the city’s promising young companies will return for its third year.
Following last year’s list, we watched as companies progressed landed sizable funding rounds, growth in key metrics and added key new partnerships. realLIST expanded to another Maryland locale with a look at the top tech companies in Columbia.
With 2019 upon us, we’re back to take a look at which companies will make the big headlines with realLIST Baltimore, and we need your help. What Baltimore startups should be getting our attention? Which founders picked winning ideas, or assembled teams that look poised to do great things? Here’s a chance to nominate a favorite up-and-comer.
A number of factors can make a startup “real.” Perhaps they’ve made some noise with a funding round, or more quietly built a bootstrapped business with revenue. Maybe their team has a proven track record, or the founders are onto a big, original idea. To help us narrow down the field of successful companies, we do have a few guidelines:
- realLIST companies can’t be older than three years. That’s in keeping with sunset period for the term “startup” that cofounder Christopher Wink set in 2012.
- Agencies, studios or other firms are a no-go: Startups must make the majority of their revenue from selling a product.
- Companies that have exited or undergone similar episodes (majority investments, acquisitions, mergers and the like) are not eligible.
