Startup Grind Baltimore is preparing for its biggest monthly event yet, and its organizers are using the occasion to raise money for charity.
Rob McGovern, founder of CareerBuilder and the mobile shopping app Cobrain, will speak Tuesday evening at the Living Classrooms Foundation (1417 Thames St.) in Fells Point. Proceeds from this month’s tickets will go to the foundation, Startup Grind Baltimore chapter director Leo Khin said.
“For specifically the Baltimore chapter, it’s the largest speaker we’ve had thus far,” Khin said. “This event is going to be a little more special than the typical event.”

So far, more than 200 people have listed themselves as attending on the group’s Meetup page.
“Even if half of them show up, that’s still 100 and that’s the first time we’ve really broken that threshold,” Khin said. “It puts a little more credibility and a little bit more buzz into the startup ecosystem.”
Khin wrote about Baltimore’s “up-and-coming startup scene” in a recent guest post.
More than 80 attended Startup Grind’s April event with keynote speaker Greg Cangialosi — CEO of MissionTix and cofounder of Baltimore Angels and Betamore.
