    Special thanks to Ron for adding Artichoke Mobile Client Management to the agenda yesterday in Columbia. Also a sincere thank you to the attendees who asked great questions and provided some thought provoking feedback. Looking forward to showcasing our progress at the Baltimore Tech Breakfast next month.

    Want to support STEM in Baltmore City? Want to give back to the TechBreakfast Community? Help us support STEM in Baltimore City!
    Every week we'll feature one Baltimore City Public school that is looking to raise money for a specific STEM project on This week, we're featuring the Leith Walk Elementary School in Baltimore. Ms. Batchelor is raising $977 to fund a projector and document camera for her classroom. If just 100 of our TechBreakfasters contributed the minimum $10 she'd get there (or even better, just 40 @ $25 each). Already $220 has been donated since we announced this effort over the weekend. To participate, check out the project details and donation page at Let's make a difference!
