Organized and Operated By



DLA Piper is hosting us in their amazing space in Mt. Washington that can handle 200 or more people, with plentiful parking, and convenient access for those that live outside the city. What more can you ask?

The DLA Piper building is in the Mt. Washington Conference Center campus (up the hill), and it is a totally amazing building. Check it out:

To get to the venue, use the Smith street entrance (and not the entrance that weaves its way through the Mt. Washington Conference Center). See below map for detail.

Parking is plentiful and there's a lot right next to the building, with plenty of room for all attendees. And it's free. What can be better? One favor, tho -- leave the few visitor spots that are right in front of the building available for the use of the offices. They have some elderly clients who aren't able to walk up the walkway to the building. The lot is really big and very close so you shouldn't need those spots anyways.

Public Transportation

The Mt. Washington campus is located very conveniently near the Light Rail stop, which is literally just down the hill from the venue. Get off at the Mt. Washington Light Rail station, and then climb the steps to the Octagon Building at Mt. Washington and from there you can get to the DLA Piper building. It's a 15-20 minute walk at most.

There are also shuttles from the JHU Homewood and JHMI campuses right to the Mt. Washington Conference center, including one that leaves at 7:40AM from Homewood getting in by 8AM, and leaving at 9:35AM to return to Homewood. Very convenient.

    For any companies/organizations looking for some exposure: It’s not too late to sponsor TowsonGlobal's 4th annual Business Plan Competition!

    Help encourage entrepreneurship and innovation in the region by sponsoring the competition. 100% of your sponsorship goes directly to the competition’s winners. Sponsorship levels are very reasonable, and I would be happy to discuss the specifics as requested. Last year’s first place winner, a team comprised of JHU students, was awarded a grand prize valued at more than $17,000! You can learn more about the competition and TowsonGlobal at or contact Stephanie Chin at [masked],[masked] 2252. Thanks!

    Excellent presentations. Identity Checkpoint is particularly timely given today's highly insecure environment for credit card transactions. Hope that it progresses rapidly and performs as described.

    I was fascinated to hear about all the tech products starting right here in Baltimore. I loved seeing what the Waldorf school is doing. Surveys of business leaders consistently show that they desperately need people with collaborative, problem solving, team and communication skills, and that those are the very skills lacking among people entering the workforce. So it is great to see a school that is focussed on those very things!

    I have a conflict tomorrow and won't be able to attend. Please don't hesitate to reach out if I can be of any assistance as it relates to your insurance. It is a new year-a good time to review your current coverages both personally and for your business. There is no cost or obligation so touch base and let's get your insurance house in order!
