Planning for the fifth annual Baltimore Innovation Week is well underway. Are you ready for Sept. 23 to Oct. 1?
And this year there’s something new. We are thrilled to announce that’s first Baltimore Innovation Week title sponsor is 14 West, an administrative services and talent acquisition company that’s part of The Agora Companies. The Agora is the decades-old Mount Vernon-based publishing and newsletter group that is updating its strategy in a fast-changing digital world.
It’s a perfect example of one of the kinds of companies we want to be part of our annual celebration of technology and entrepreneurship: an established, if quiet, Baltimore anchor looking to learn and share innovative approaches to how it gets business done.
Meet some from the 14 West team (and ours) this Monday and help shape what this year will look like at our annual Help Plan Baltimore Innovation Week event. Attend if you plan to organize a community event or want to share feedback on how to make this year’s BIW the biggest and most impactful yet.
Now that we’re entering #BIW16 planning season, the newly launched website ( will fill up with an events calendar, plus information on sponsors, partners and speakers.

Be a part of it.
