Charm City is definitely a place where innovation happens. After all, the first umbrella factory was established in Baltimore, and the first long-distance telegraph line was routed between Baltimore and Washington DC. So we know for sure that we are going to arrive in Baltimore on June 24 to find some of the best startups around.

That’s right; on June 24th at Mother’s, Tech Cocktail (a Tech.Co Production) will find Baltimore’s Startup of the Year at our Startup of the Year Competition & Tour mixer event.

If you haven’t heard, we’ve been traveling the world from Tampa Bay to Dallas, Halifax to Memphis discovering the hottest startups. All winning startups along the Celebrate Startup Tour will be invited to pitch at Celebrate 2015 to compete in our startup competition to win the Tech.Co Startup of the Year title right in the heart of Downtown Las Vegas October 4–6th.

But there’s a lot more to win than just the title. All competitors at the global Startup of the Year competition will get the opportunity to be accepted into a top, U.S.-based accelerator. What’s more, CEA will select one of the pitching startups as the winner of a Consumer Electronics Startup Prize Package. The prize provides the startup with a trip to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2016, including hotel and travel stipend to Las Vegas, floor space at Eureka Park, and 10 CES exhibitor badges.
