Betamore CEO Jen Meyer said Friday she will leave her role at the Federal Hill-based incubator and startup hub at the end of the month to become a vice president of ZeroFox, a cybersecurity firm that was Betamore’s first graduate.
Meyer said Friday she announced her plans to Betamore’s advisory board Thursday night, when she also outlined the incubator’s accomplishments for the year. The incubator’s member companies earned $16.6 million in revenue in 2017, hired 86 employees total and contributed $28.5 million to the city’s economy, she said.
Meyer will become vice president of global customer operations for ZeroFox.
“While I am moving to a new role, I remain dedicated to the Betamore community and will service on its advisory board, continuing to push its vision and mission forward,” Meyer said in an email.
Betamore has launched a formal search for a new CEO. The incubator doubled its footprint last year and when it opened a second campus, at Port Covington’s City Garage, that can accommodate about 90 people. Betamore converted in 2015 to a nonprofit organization when it merged with the Greater Baltimore Technology Council.
