Dundalk Dan’s Awesome Beef Jerky participated in the fifth annual Baltimore Innovation Week #BIW16 presented by 14 West. The weeklong event celebrates technology and innovation happening in and around Baltimore, Maryland. The week hosts over 60 events that anyone can attend including conferences, speakers and social gatherings.
Dundalk Dan’s kicked off the week meeting with successful entrepreneur and investor Paul Singh. Singh is currently on his #RJTechTour where he makes stops in major cities across the U.S. to lead lectures, host office hours and meet with local start-ups. He had some great insight for Dundalk Dan’s and was excited to try our Chesapeake beef jerky!
The first day of #BIW16 continued with a happy hour hosted by the Emerging Technology Center (ETC) at their Haven Campus which is where Dundalk Dan’s headquarters is located. Multiple vendors participated in the tech happy hour and the turnout was huge!
It was no surprise that our Chesapeake beef jerky was a huge hit! Many people tried our jerky for the first time and we watched as every one of their faces lit up with the initial bite! A sample was all it took for most people to buy at least one pack of Dundalk Dan’s Awesome Beef Jerky! Most customer bought more than one pack, and some people even left to get their wallets just to come back to buy some. At the end of the two-hour event, we had sold about 80% of the inventory!
Not only did we get to introduce more people to our flagship product, we got to meet a lot of local innovators just as passionate about the start-up world as Dundalk Dan’s. A big thank you to the ETC for allowing us to participate in the event as well as to all our new and current customers. We’re looking forward to participating in more events that support local businesses!
