About BDC

The Baltimore Development Corporation (BDC) is a non-profit organization, which serves as the economic development agency for the City of Baltimore. Our mission is to retain and expand existing businesses, support cultural resources, and attract new opportunities that spur economic growth and help create jobs. BDC serves as a one-stop shop for anyone interested in opening, expanding or relocating a business in Baltimore City.

The BDC is often grabbing headlines through its role in major development projects in Baltimore City’s downtown area, but we are equally focused on community-based projects. Learn more about our efforts from this feature story in the Baltimore Metropolitan Council’s publication, COG Quarterly.
