Daily deals company Groupon, which has local backing from Chevy Chase-based New Enterprise Associates (NEA) and Ted Leonsis, the owner of the Washington Capitals and Wizards, said it has launched its G-Team philanthropic service in 11 new markets, including Baltimore.
The service, which now operates in 50 markets, including D.C., helps local causes carry out specific projects. In Baltimore, for instance, if 50 people donate $10, then the Greater Homewood Community Corporation can repaint the Barclay School’s main office. Groupon launched the service last summer.
