State-of-the-art facility in uptown Towson connects TU, regional entrepreneurs

After more than two years of thoughtful renovations, the StarTUp at the Armory—the university’s front door for startups, small businesses and the region’s largest corporations—opens Monday in uptown Towson.

This public-facing, vibrant space will catalyze entrepreneurs and executives and connect them to each other and to TU’s programs and people.

The 26,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility is home to signature TU entrepreneurship programs like the StarTUp Accelerator, competitions and events for students and professionals and 6,000 square feet of dedicated free co-working space.

At the corner of Washington and Chesapeake avenues across from the new university office space at 401 Washington and adjacent to Baltimore County government headquarters, the former Maryland National Guard building’s location and footprint made it an ideal site. Working with Greenberg Gibbons real estate development, the university has transformed the StarTUp at the Armory into a best-in-class entrepreneurship and innovation hub.

Its size, accessibility and resident organizations and ventures make this space one of a kind in the region.
