BMBD is the acronym for Baltimore Metro Business Development, which is our Networking group, that we launched in July 2015.
Our first event was that Sept.
Next week (Wed. 9/12 6 to 8:30PM, Towson Sheraton) will be our 10th such event.
BMBD exists to bring together professionals from across the region through regular events.
Our BMBD LinkedIn group has recently crossed over 600+ members. The majority of those are C-Suite Executives representing companies in the $5-$25M range. Companies which have had success and are looking to grow.
It’s been personally rewarding to hold these events and bring these Executives from numerous industries together. I’m a champion for Baltimore. The issues which our home faces are well known. Those issues are real and should not be ignored.
That said, I think we also fail in touting our collective strengths. The Baltimore Metro has high median income, and a high level of postgraduates. The region is a leader in Higher Education, Financial Services, Bio Services, Healthcare, Tech, and Defense Contracting.
It’s inspiring to meet the people who attend our events and learn more about their respective companies and industries.
Don't have plans Wed night? Join us! (Need to register.)
