Technical.ly Baltimore: How TEDCO, Brown Advisory and other organizations support Maryland’s underrepresented founders

“Now, Wahid also serves as an adjunct professor at Johns Hopkins University, incorporating the teachings from Pitch Creator courses into his lessons.
“I went through the pain of trying to raise capital,” Wahid said. “Now, the fact that I get the chance to teach that in the classroom, what I’m really doing is bridging that gap between academia and industry.”
Wahid said he hopes Pitch Creator’s lessons help entrepreneurs of color since they often need to communicate in ways that they may not be used to… “There are differences [in how entrepreneurs of color must communicate], but one of the ways to make change with those differences is to share information,” he said. “At the end of the day, founders of all colors and backgrounds need good information. If you can get that to them, you can level the playing field.”

“Baltimore has a burgeoning tech scene, and as an educator at Hopkins and Loyola, I’m lucky to see the early stages of incredible companies and ideas each day,” said Mustafa Wahid, adjunct professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Education and startup executive-in-residence at Loyola University Maryland.
“As a Crab Tank committee member, I have the honor of helping select entrepreneurs that embody the charm, grit, and resilience that the city of Baltimore has to offer. It is a unique opportunity to highlight companies of Baltimore heritage and I’m excited to see what companies and founders we uncover in the selection process.”
