This summer we’ve had two terrific opportunities to engage with different aspects of the entrepreneurial community. In late July Professor Arnold Chang and some of his students visited us from Kookmin University in Seoul, South Korea. They came to study UB’s entrepreneurship programs and how those might be adapted to the South Korean context. We felt privileged that UB was selected for study, along with NYU, CUNY, Columbia, and UNC-Chapel Hill, and are very much looking forward to closer collaboration between our programs.
Last week a group of faculty and staff, led by Dean Murray Dalziel, spent some time with UB alum Demian Costa, who runs Kevin Plank’s Sagamore Ventures. Sagamore is redeveloping the Port Covington section of Baltimore, including a new UnderArmour headquarters, the City Garage incubator focused on the maker community, and a distillery that aims to take on Jack Daniels! We are hoping to collaborate much more closely with the UnderArmour ecosystem in the years ahead–it’s great to have such energetic and community-minded entrepreneurs in Baltimore.
