What have I not thought of that is going to harm my business?Every principal at Blu has built a business (or two or three). We know what it’s like to give the big presentation to your biggest customer in the morning and empty the rubbish bins at night.While every company aspires to be a “unicorn”, the reality is that only 0.14% of venture-backed consumer and enterprise tech startups will reach a valuation of $1 billion or more.

Since 1989, Baltimore Community Lending, Inc. has been supporting the revitalization and strengthening of underserved Baltimore neighborhoods through innovative and flexible financing designed to promote community development. BCL has successfully provided loan capital for affordable housing, community facilities and mixed-use developments. BCL recognized, however, that to revitalize Baltimore’s stressed neighborhoods and economically empower its residents, particularly minority residents, a small business economic development strategy is a necessary compliment to efforts to rebuild and rehabilitate the housing stock and commercial real estate. A neighborhood must have local amenities to ensure its vitality and stability. It is also critical that, while housing is being rehabbed and stabilized, there is a growth of jobs at a scale that ensures potential occupants can sustain their housing and support their families.

The BioHealth Capital Region has unmatched biohealth assets from iconic federal institutions, world-class universities, top-notch healthcare facilities, and global and emerging bioscience companies.

While other regions with far less assets have proactively addressed this opportunity by creating innovation-driven economic development organizations and initiatives. It is time central Maryland started to close this gap, and it is BioHealth Innovation’s mission to complete.

We promote job creation and professional development in our community.Experienced InvestingAs an entrepreneur, a lot is riding on your shoulders. Your family, friends, and employees are counting on you. Even when you’re not at work you’re thinking about your business. Am I doing the right thing? What is the right way to grow? What have I not thought of that is going to harm my business?Every principal at Blu has built a business (or two or three). We know what it’s like to give the big presentation to your biggest customer in the morning and empty the rubbish bins at night.While every company aspires to be a “unicorn”, the reality is that only 0.14% of venture-backed consumer and enterprise tech startups will reach a valuation of $1 billion or more. The good news is that as an entrepreneur, you don’t need to be a unicorn to be wildly successful—and neither do we. As a Primary Source VC, our own capital is invested alongside yours. The majority of tech M&A occurs in the $15-$30 million range. We like to invest in companies that aspire to grow beyond this measure, but for whom an exit in this range would still represent a rewarding success.

Want to see cool new technology? Want to interact with other cool techies, startups, and business folks? Have some time in the morning? Then come to TechBreakfast, a monthly demo-style event where entrepreneurs, techies, developers, designers, business people, and interested people see showcases on cool new technology in a demo format and interact with each other. "Show and Tell for Adults" is what we usually say. No boring presentations or speakers who drone on. This is a "show and tell" format where we tell people to show me, don't tell me about the great things they are working on. Each TechBreakfast begins at 8:00am and goes until 10AM (although people usually hang around later). This event is FREE! Thank our sponsors when you see them!
