The New UpSurge Initiative Aims to Make Baltimore an ‘Equitech’ City

Baltimore has a growing group of tech companies building locally, while they’re also looking to grow in markets around the world. At the same time, the city is interested in attracting more tech talent and companies to come here.

They’re complementary efforts to make Baltimore a tech hub that have been developing with increasing pace over the last decade. And on Thursday, a new organization called UpSurge Baltimore launched with a goal of uniting all of it under a single idea.

“Our big vision is to be the country and the world’s first ‘equitech’ city,” said UpSurge Baltimore CEO Jamie McDonald, an investment banker who went on to lead strategy for and has long been active in Baltimore ecosystem building.
