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.

Want to present at a showcase?

Have something you've been working on that you'd like some feedback on? Have something that you'd like to share? Have a kernel of an idea that you'd like some thoughts on developing further? Just leave a comment for us below or send a message to the organizers and we'll get you scheduled for an upcoming BTB. If this one is filled up, don't despair - we want you at our next one! Sign up for that one too.

See you all there!

    We can use your help! Would you like us to be able to live stream and record the TechBreakfast events? If so, we need to get to 1,000 Subscribers on YouTube to be enabled for YouTube Live - which will allow us to Livestream our TechBreakfasts at high quality. If you have a YouTube or Google account, you can help us by simply clicking on subscribe on our YouTube channel at Give it a try and help us out!

    Also, while we missed our opportunity to get to 1,000 likes by the end of May (and get more promotional value from Facebook), we have a second chance. All we ask is to have you ask your friends who like TechBreakfast to like us on Facebook too - Tell your friends! Help us grow this thing even further!

    This was my 1st TechBreakfast and I'm so glad I came. My head is spinning with the swirl of entrepreneurial juices that were flowing. Now to dissect all that I heard and see what I can use from all the wonderful ideas that were shared.

    Another great meetup!!!

    A quiet shout out... Although I presented MoneyPinchers in December, since the last TechBreakfast Baltimore I have formed another startup and last Friday file a patent application for a real world solution to the identity theft problems facing all of us. As a result, I am seeking sweat equity partners (until full funding) to help me build one of the largest commercial IT operations worldwide in the next 6 months. Successful startup and/or large corporate experience required for the following positions: CEO, COO, CKO, CSOO, CTOO, CMO, and VP's: Administrative Services, Strategy and Quality, IT, Security, Customer Service.

    My apologies! I had the wrong URL for the Geek Chic site. I had put in a placeholder URL which was incorrect. I don't have the URL to their site, but their Facebook page is at If the Geek Chic folks have the right site, please send it my way. Apologies for any issues this might have caused for folks who were confused about the presentation.
