Mindgrub Wins Tech Business of the Year
Groove Wins Design/Dev Firm of the Year  

Over 2,000 of you voted. From Startup of the Year to Tech Community Leader of the Year, here's who you picked, as announced at Beta City.

More than 2,000 people voted in the third annual Baltimore Innovation Awards.

First you nominated them. Then you voted on them. Then last night at the evening reception of Beta City we announced them — giving out actual awards made by Fab Lab Baltimore — inside the not-yet-launched massive City Garage makerspace.

Beta City, led by the Betamore incubator with Sagamore Ventures, and Startup Maryland, was a signature event of Baltimore Innovation Week 2015, which organizes. In addition to the dozen Innovation Awards voted online, Betamore gave two curated awards.

  • Tech Community Leader of the Year: Jen Meyer for updating the Betamore vision

  • Technologist of the Year: Angelique Weger for her work with Girl Develop It Baltimore and Detroit Trading

Betamore cofounder and board chairman Greg Cangialosi gave out two awards on behalf of the incubator, taking up the mantle from the former it absorbed and that group’s longtime Tech Nite:

  • Beta Award: Bob Embry, the notable president of the Abell Foundation, was honored for his meaningful impact on the region’s entrepreneurial community. An adviser accepted the award on his behalf.
