A recent Inc. Magazine article — “How to Build a Successful Startup Company Outside Silicon Valley” — uses Baltimore as its poster child.
OpiaTalk CEO Tom Popomaronis is the subject of the interview. The Baltimore native offers tips about starting a company and elaborates on the ecommerce startup’s vision. He’s also asked about the city’s tech scene, and Popomaronis doesn’t disappoint:

We also really want to support the tech scene here and bring more attention and resources to the area. There’s a lot of local talent, and we want to prove it’s possible to “make it” even if you’re not in NYC or the Valley. Baltimore is fiercely emerging, and we like being a part of that.
