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.

    As I mentioned, I am seeking a conversation with a VC, early stage investor or angel to discuss our app for the cleaning, hospitality and any org that does work by list and needs to insure quality and maintain customer communication and high levels of service.

    Please email me at [masked]

    Again, just looking for an hour to discuss the potential for the App and the business.

    Fantastic presentation all around this morning. Everybody brought their "A" Game. I was also glad that a lot more strategist in the room spoke up this morning from the audience as well as the presenters emphasizing the importance of collaborations, partnerships across platforms and sectors. Bonus points for the shout out about investing in start ups early on and I would also like to mention the importance of investing in team players early in the game as you build your businesses and seek new marketplaces. My follow ups from this morning have already come in at the same time that I'm sending some out as well.
    Thanks to Ron Schmelzer for bringing us all together in win win ways. ~ We are in sync.
