The latest on innovation and entrepreneurship in Maryland
TEDCO is committed to creating an inclusive and equitable space for underrepresented entrepreneurs and CEOs to succeed. Through programs like our Social Impact Funds, Urban Business Innovation Initiative, and the Rural and Underserved Business Recovery from Impact of COVID-19 (RUBRIC) programs we are working to support underrepresented entrepreneurs in reaching their potential.

Read about IPGen, their story and technology, and how TEDCO's Social Impact Funds have helped founders like James Brinkley II take their innovative ideas to market.

This program provides entrepreneurs with a free, one-year subscription to IPGen’s IP SaaS platform to assist start-ups in navigating the patent process. IPGen provides an end-to-end patent lifecycle management platform, with social network and collaboration features, that uses state-of-the-art technologies (e.g., AI and machine learning tools) to streamline and automate aspects of the patent process – saving time, money, and associated risk.

Looking to make connections and identify partners in the life sciences industry? Use the Maryland Life Sciences Directory, a free tool for exploring more than 1,000 profiles of companies active in Maryland’s robust life science markets. Explore company profiles for an overview of business activities, products, and services, and to connect with potential partners.  

BIITC provides an investor with income tax credits equal to 33% or 50% of an eligible investment in a Qualified Maryland Biotechnology Company (QMBC), supporting investment in seed and early stage biotech companies. Learn more below! 

New initiatives will enable further innovation and collaboration amongst industries while fostering Maryland’s cybersecurity ecosystem.

Headquartered in Greenbelt, Maryland, TRX Systems is the developer of NEON® GPS-denied location solutions and the TRX Dismounted Assured Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) System (TRX DAPS). The company specializes in cutting-edge technologies and solutions that provide resilient and trusted position and time in environments where GPS is challenged, degraded, or denied.

This accelerator will help early-stage companies from around the country access content and mentorship to systematically advance their businesses. The 45-day virtual program culminates in a Demo Day where participating companies will have an opportunity to pitch to investors. Applications close February 21, 2022.
