Last evening, we attended the InvestMaryland Challenge Finale event where we were honored as a semi-finalist in the Information Technology category. More than 260 startups from across the nation applied to be a part of the program and just 41 companies advanced to the semi-finals. The evening featured remarks from Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley and an awards ceremony recognizing innovation in four categories.
Artichoke Mobile Client Management was please to receive two awards worth more than $50,000.
