In 1950, Baltimore’s population hit a staggering 950,000 people. Today, the city has fewer than 600,000, meaning we have lost more than 350,000 people over the 70-year period.
There are organizations fighting this alarming trend. Innovation Works, run by A. Jay Nwachu and chaired by Frank Knott, is one of them, identifying talented entrepreneurs in Baltimore City, educating, funding and mentoring them so they can build successful businesses that create jobs. More jobs mean a stronger economy and a more desirable city.
