Betamore Forms DC Partnership

Betamore, a technology and entrepreneurship campus also based at 1111 Light Street, has formed a partnership with DC-based 1776, a community for technology startups. From a press release:

Under this new partnership, Betamore will join the Startup Federation, a global network of the world’s top startup hubs, all of which share an exclusive member base of startups with highly scalable products or services.  By partnering, 1776 and Betamore will work closely to link the Washington, DC and Baltimore ecosystems to give the region’s most promising entrepreneurs the mentors, industry experts and connections they need to scale.

“We are excited to add Betamore to the Startup Federation and create possibilities for collaboration throughout the entire Capital region,” said Donna Harris, co-founder of 1776.  “The entire DC, Maryland and Virginia region is awash with talent and partnering with Betamore will allow members from the entire region to tap into that talent.”

“The Federation is the first of its kind to connect the dots between 21st century, founder-focused startup incubators around the world,” said Mike Brenner, CEO and co-founder of Betamore. “Reciprocity memberships are just scratching the surface of the potential this consortium can provide. What I think is going to be a game-changer is the commercialization and partnership opportunities that can develop between our incubator companies.”
