Programs & Activities

Coworking spaces in and of themselves are nice, but more importantly are the networking and sense of community that develop among entrepreneurs, innovators, mentors, coaches, and investors.  It is the collisions that result and the connections to the entire Maryland startup and innovation ecosystem that provide value and benefit to members of the hotDesks network of coworking spaces.
