"Betamore and Sagamore Ventures are teaming up to bring Beta City back for a second year. The event is set to be held at City Garage from 3-10 p.m. on Sept. 29, during Baltimore Innovation Week 2016 presented by 14 West.
Six startups, chosen from previously submitted applications, will pitch to open the event. Investors from firms like NEA, Grotech Ventures, Greenspring Associates and Plank Industries will hear the pitches and judge the competition.
New this year: up to $75,000 in prizes will be awarded.
Last year’s event, won by Yet Analytics and Citelighter, didn’t have monetary awards, but organizers said they received contributions from TEDCO, Johns Hopkins Technology Ventures, Evergreen Advisors, Baltimore Angels, SC&H Group, University of Maryland College Park and SunTrust Bank."
