Loyola University Maryland named the cohort of the first Baltipreneurs accelerator this week.
The eight ventures were selected from a pool of about 60 applicants. The program, run by Loyola’s year-old Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, will include sessions that start this week and extend through a demo day in April. Each company receives $2,000, plus the potential for up to $5,000.
In an interview late last month, CIE Director Wendy Bolger said that the program reflects a “dual mission” to grow entrepreneurship on the Loyola campus, as well as serve underrepresented groups in the city.
“Loyola hasn’t offered something like this before either to students or the community at large,” Bolger said. “The fact that we’re bringing both of those groups together is exciting."
