Campaign: Empower by GoDaddy

“When you live next to vacant houses, when you see your friends’ parents struggling with addiction, you have to make a choice early in life — you’re either going to accept that’s how life has to be for you and people like you, or you’re going to do something to change it.”
– Mayor Brandon M. Scott, Baltimore’s youngest mayor at age 36.

Introducing the premiere of Made in America: Baltimore, a YouTube docuseries produced by GoDaddy, the company helping millions of microbusinesses and entrepreneurs succeed, to shine a spotlight on enterprising entrepreneurs in vital American cities. Produced in partnership with GoDaddy’s global social impact program, Empower by GoDaddy, Made in America seeks to inspire entrepreneurs and encourage audiences around the world to support small businesses in their local communities.

In this episode, we learn about the entrepreneurial spirit of Charm City. Instead of only relying on big companies to provide job opportunities, Baltimore is investing in its people who pursue entrepreneurship that truly power the city’s local economy.

Meet Q Ragsdale, director of acceleration at Impact Hub and local Empower by GoDaddy partner, who wants to help small businesses grow online and in-person to survive and thrive. He talks about artisan culture growing in Baltimore right now, especially among Black-owned businesses.

Also in the premiere, GoDaddy talks to Baltimoreans who believe in communities that empower its citizens to succeed and the power of small businesses to serve the greater good.

“There’s nothing more powerful than a group of Baltimoreans dedicated to something.” – Mayor Brandon M. Scott
