About

hotDesks is the Eastern Shore’s connection to the Maryland startup and entrepreneur ecosystem.  An initiative of the Eastern Shore Entrepreneurship Center serving the eight counties of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, hotDesks offers a network of coworking spaces, entrepreneur and innovation training, and access to capital for high-growth, scalable startup and growth businesses.

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.
