Chairman & Co-Founder, Betamore
Greg Cangialosi leads two successful technology firms in Baltimore, and is deeply involved in advancing the city of Baltimore’s innovation and entrepreneurship communities.
The entrepreneur and investor is the CEO of MissionTix, an online event ticketing platform, and co-founder and chairman of Betamore, a Baltimore-based campus for technology and entrepreneurship.
He also is a managing member of the Baltimore Angel’s, an investment group focused on investing in early stage technology companies in the region.
At MissionTix, he said clients receive a suite of online and mobile technologies that allow consumers to purchase and promote tickets to events. They also offer event marketing and insight and analysis for the audience and customers.
The company now is expanding — primarily via word-of-mouth referrals and new upcoming marketing initiatives, he said.
He helped to launch Betamore in 2013, which is an incubator for start-up firms that offers education, incubation, community, professional & workforce development.
“Technology changes so fast that there is a need for people to get educated on the latest technologies to fill the void in skills in the local workforce,” Cangialosi said.
In one case, a start-up that grew with the help of Betamore, ZeroFox, now occupies the whole floor below Betamore.
There are about 30 community members using the firm’s services, and Betamore has about 10 companies in its incubator.
Dozens have come through over the past two years, he said.
There now are plans to expand the Betamore model.
“We want to grow in scale and make sure our educational products get out beyond our four walls,” Cangialosi said.
Cangialosi also sits on the board of the Baltimore Development Corporation, the National Advisory Council on Innovation & Entrepreneurship for the Secretary of Commerce, and WhatCounts.
