Home is Where the Heart is
A message from EAGB Board Chair Brian Pieninck -
"The new year brings exciting opportunities for Baltimore with the announcement of the merger of EAGB with The Greater Baltimore Committee (GBC). This reimagined organization will leverage the shared expertise and commitment of those who have long advocated for the economic health and wellbeing of our region, developing a roadmap for success. I expect the merger of these two organizations to shine a spotlight on the rich assets of Greater Baltimore and the competitive destination it represents for a broad array of trade, innovation, education, healthcare, and culture.”

In this month's Greater Perspective, EAGB asks two of its partner organizations - each representing very different jurisdictions - four questions about residential options and their importance to economic growth. Without a doubt, a significant asset in the attraction and retention of talent, investment and business is the quality of life that anyone working and/or living in the Region can enjoy. Diverse and affordable housing stock benefits that quality.
Baltimore Collegetown Network produces the Baltimore Look Book publication for colleges and universities to use as they attract students to their campuses and to the Region's neighborhoods. In the newly refreshed and redesigned edition, Collegetown follows five students around Baltimore for 'a day in the life.' Through brief videos linked within the Look Book pages, the students share some truly remarkable things about living and going to school here.
Despite the economic uncertainty brought on by the lingering effects of the COVID-19 global pandemic, investments in Greater Baltimore’s start-ups and early-stage companies climbed to nearly $1.2B in 2021, surpassing 2020’s all-time high of $809M by $365M. The totals raised this year are a clear signal of the Region’s economic strength and of the confidence that investors have in the diverse and resilient companies that are thriving here.
