Offit Kurman Hosts Startup Maryland in Frederick

For Immediate Release IMG_1520BFrederick, MD | September 22, 2015 This past Monday, Startup Maryland visited Frederick, MD, where the program’s Pitch Across Maryland participants met with the attorneys and staff at Offit Kurman Attorneys At Law. The law firm, which operates in locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic, hosted the traveling Startup Maryland team out of its office along Carroll Creek in Downtown Frederick. A regional initiative launched out of Startup America, Startup Maryland literally mobilizes the state’s startup community for Pitch Across Maryland: each year, local entrepreneurs tour the state to raise money and interest in their businesses while connecting with investors and municipal decision-makers. The three-week long celebration and competition spotlights innovators at various Tour Stops throughout Maryland, culminating in a finals event in Annapolis on October 2nd. Entrepreneurs and companies of all sizes and categories have boarded the 2015 Pitch Across Maryland tour bus. This season’s supporters and sponsors are equally diverse, and represent Maryland’s top economic development, business media, and education interests. “It’s not often we get to show our support for entrepreneurs in a manner this direct,” said Offit Kurman business law and real estate attorney David Severn. “My colleagues and I consider ourselves partners to these businesses. Whether we serve them in the capacity of a client relationship or not, we take pride in contributing to their development—and the overall growth of our regional economy—while having fun doing so.” Offit Kurman supplied the Startup Maryland crew with refreshments and also secured the proposal permit necessary for the bus’s Tour Stop on the Frederick’s scenic creek walk. The firm would like to thank founder and CEO Michael Binko and the rest of Startup Maryland for their time and enthusiasm, and wish them well during the final weeks of Pitch Across Maryland!   For more information about Startup Maryland and the Pitch Across Maryland tour, visit startupmd.org.
