"Baltimore is the perfect location for Light City U, at a time when the entire nation is engaged in a dialogue about social justice and change," Brooke Hall, founding partner of Light City Baltimore, said in a news release. "Baltimore has long been a city of innovation, and was even recently acknowledged by Inc. as a hub for tech startups. That recognition is just a starting point. Light City Baltimore will be a launch pad for our city nationally and internationally, establishing Baltimore as home to entrepreneurs, thinkers, business leaders and artists who have the same goal - to stay in constant, forward motion, building and improving on the foundation of the past, and dedicated to using the arts and technology as agents for social change."
