Human Being Productions is creating a new shared space for videographers and photographers - Baltimore

MPS clients Human Being Productions have grown significantly since they were formed four years ago. In 2017, they made some of their biggest moves yet by evolving their business model to incorporate freelance content producers, allowing them to focus more on running and growing the business. They also plan to expand to create a studio space for new content producers in 2018. MPS organized this article with Baltimore to discuss their journey and future goals, providing valuable exposure and generating buzz for their upcoming projects.

Kombucha brewer hopes to quadruple production in Lutherville  - Wild Kombucha in Baltimore Business Journal

Mobtown Fermentation in Lutherville started as a group of friends brewing kombucha in a garage in Baltimore's Hampden neighborhood. Thanks to demand from family, friends, and students at nearby Johns Hopkins University, they were able to devote themselves full-time to developing their product, Wild Kombucha. Thanks to a loan from Baltimore County and a drive to expand, they are setting their sites on expanding to other markets. MPS helped facilitate this goal by gathering interest in their efforts in local media, including this article in the Baltimore Business Journal, which accompanied a podcast they recorded where co-founder Sid Sharma discussed their plans in-depth.

Baltimore Whiskey Co. announces distillery September opening date, new name - Baltimore sun

The Baltimore Whiskey Company has been distilling spirits in Baltimore since 2015, but it wasn't until spring 2018 when they released their first whiskey and namesake, Epoch Rye Whiskey. In that time they developed and produced a number of other award-winning spirits, such as their Shot Tower Gin and Baltamaro line of amaros, which were successful enough for them to move from their original location in Baltimore's Remington neighborhood to a state-of-the-art distillery in the newly opened Union Collective. Now armed with their signature product, an increased production capacity, a new name (Baltimore Spirits Company), and PR support from Merchant Professional Services, they are poised to storm the craft spirits market.
