Prepare for Success

Ideas are everywhere. Successful entrepreneurs know that not every idea is a good business opportunity. Before you bet the ranch on your idea, take the time to research who will buy your product or service and what competition you will face.


While preparing your startup endeavor, be sure to research and understand the market that you will be entering. Several organizations in the Baltimore Resource Navigator offer assistance in this area (click on the links below).


Many support organizations have classes and workshops for all types of entrepreneurs.  Explore the Calendar of Events to find an event near you.

New Member Orientation Description
Thank you so much for interest in becoming a member at Open Works! The Open Works community can't wait to make space for you!

New member orientation gets everyone's membership started by joining a group of other potential new members to tour our facilities. You'll get the lay of the land and learn how to best take advantage of the tools, technology and making potential that awaits you here. During orientation, we encourage you to ask questions about our facilities, community, membership plans, or anything else. After we do a walkthrough of the space, we'll sit down and go over the membership agreement together. Once you've completed a membership agreement, you can sign up and set-up payment for the level of membership of your choice. If you would like to become a resident member, you'll also be able to select your microstudio before you leave as well.
