The T. Rowe Price Foundation and nonprofit groups plan to open a center in downtown Baltimore to encourage entrepreneurship and financial health among low- and moderate-income residents.

 

Bmore CoLab, which the foundation will run with the help of CASH Campaign of Maryland and other nonprofits, will start offering classes and other financial services in February at an Inner Harbor center at Lombard and Calvert streets.

 

The CoLab will offer another outlet for the CASH Campaign to reach aspiring entrepreneurs, especially “with so many people, nowadays, working in the gig economy or starting 'side hustles,’” said Robin McKinney, CASH Campaign’s CEO AND SSW alum, in the announcement.

 

CASH works with low- to moderate-income people and families in the city and across the state to promote economic advancement. Other groups participating in Bmore CoLab include KIVA Baltimore, Innovation Works and Mission Launch. All, including CASH, receive grants from the foundation.
