Baltimore County Entrepreneurship Ecosystem Study
The Baltimore County Department of Economic & Workforce Development (DEWD) wanted to evaluate the County’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and to generate a plan to enhance the ecosystem. The plan would help contribute to job and economic growth. The County had experienced limited success with county-founded businesses, and concerns were raised as to the competitiveness and entrepreneurial infrastructure (real or perceived) in Baltimore County.
Facility Logix conducted a study that included a market assessment and SWOT analysis associated with the Baltimore County Entrepreneurial Ecosystem and the new business formation rate. Five recommendations focused on implementing an economic gardening strategy to facilitate and support entrepreneurs thereby spurring the development of new jobs. Baltimore County is in the process of implementing these recommendations.
