Towson University’s role as an anchor institution allows it to leverage its relationships and reach to bring people together and spark innovation and entrepreneurship.
Through the redevelopment of the former Maryland National Guard Armory building in downtown Towson, TU is creating new opportunities to connect campus with the Greater Baltimore business community to address entrepreneurship and workforce development.
When it opens in summer 2021, the StarTUp at the Armory will serve as TU’s front door for start-ups, small businesses, as well as our region’s largest corporations. This public-facing vibrant space will catalyze entrepreneurs and executives and connect them to each other and to TU’s programs and people.
The Towson University StarTUp Accelerator is an intensive eight-week, cohort-based fellowship that accelerates ventures.
Apply to be a fellow in our second cohort. Applications are due by March 21. Accepted fellows will be announced on March 29.
