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.

The StarTUp at the Armory serves as TU’s front door for start-ups, small businesses, as well as our region’s largest corporations. This public-facing vibrant space catalyzes entrepreneurs and executives and connects them to each other and to TU’s programs and people.
