Here’s what happened at the Baltimore Super Meetup

The tech community got a chance to check out one of the city’s new spaces for startups. It was a group activity. It was fun.
On July 23, the Baltimore Super Meetup (organized by Technical.ly) landed at Spark, an office and coworking space above Power Plant Live! that will officially open in the fall.
The buzz around the new space (and the Baltimore tech scene as a whole) brought out a big crowd. Baltimore Sun photographer Sloane Brown also made an appearance to feature the event in her “Scene and Heard After Work” column.

DreamIt Health Baltimore stretched out the space, which is located on the 3rd floor of the building at 8 Market Place, over the winter. The whole crowd got a chance to tour the space firsthand.

It wouldn’t be a meetup without pizza, and there was plenty of pizza.

Luke Cooper, Chris Garvis and Eric Sauter of Peach came out to grab a beer after work. Cooper, the CEO of Peach, told us about his new role as treasurer of the board at TEDCO, Maryland’s entrepreneurship-boosting quasi-governmental agency.

Beyond grabbing some pizza and beer, the chance for meetup organizers to get together brought everyone out of their niche, and into the same space. We spotted Baltimore Node’s Todd Blatt talking to Unallocated Space’s “Forgotten” (yeah, that’s his name) as the two discussed getting new homes for their respective makerspaces. With the Node having recently moved and Unallocated looking to move soon, we’re sure a few tips were exchanged.
The event also brought folks from different sides of the tech community together. After giving us a quick tour of his office on the fourth floor of the building, Tissue Analytics’ Kevin Keenahan stepped out of health IT land to talk to Ratio Clothing founder Paul Tyng.
