DID YOU KNOW: Baltimore has been on the nation’s radar as one of the coolest cities on the East Coast? The people, the food, the character all play major roles in the influx of millennials into neighborhoods such as Federal Hill, Fells Point, Canton, Hampden, etc.. The city’s culture fosters collaboration and innovation so it's no surprise Baltimore is home to the entrepreneurs of the mid-Atlantic. With so many concepts and products flowing through the streets of the city, it’s important to have affordable and accessible spaces that support small startups and their big ideas.
Working from home is cool; but if you’ve got big plans, need meeting spaces, a new home base, there are plenty of co-working spaces in the Baltimore area that cater to your budget, location, and needs. As an entrepreneur, I wanted to share 10 co-working spaces in Baltimore for my fellow small-business owners:
Spark. Located in the Power Plant District, Spark is close to I-83, Inner Harbor, and Business District of Downtown Baltimore. The space offers entrepreneurs a variety of services for their business, as well as a shared kitchen, fitness center, and an on-site parking garage.

Impact Hub. With a Baltimore location, Impact Hub brings its international connections to Charm City. Membership is dependent on your anticipated use of the space - are you looking for day-to-day access, set up home base, or just have conference room access? You can see Membership details HERE.
