Impact Village: Port Covington

Impact Village: Port Covington provides free office space for small businesses and nonprofits

Here’s a look at the ventures taking space at the complex inside the Baltimore development.

On one side of South Baltimore’s Port Covington, cranes are constructing new buildings where developers are aiming to house businesses and residents seeking to move into the area.

Across the peninsula, tucked behind the bus garage-turned-tech and maker hub at City Garage, buildings that formerly housed industry and operation are already up and running with businesses and orgs, with a purpose.

Impact Village is the home of renovated office, training and workshop space that’s designed to provide a home for small businesses and nonprofits working to help the city. It offers space free of charge, and supplies resources like Wi-Fi, mail and security. The space has a mix of shared offices and meeting rooms, as well as dedicated spaces for nonprofits like the social impact startup accelerator Conscious Venture Lab, nonprofit suit outfitter Sharp Dressed Man and woodworking-slash-training program Sandtown Millworks.
