Women Mean Business
Reducing Stress at Your Desk
Wednesday, September 26th | 11:30am

When you’re sitting at your desk, do you feel yourself tighten up during the day? Do you end the day with sore shoulders and neck? Is your back killing you? If so, you are not alone. Very few work stations allow for pain-free, ergonomic seating. Bad posture and tight muscles affect most of us.

We have a real treat in store as Wendy Lee from Massage Envy will speak to us relaxation and reducing “stress at the desk.” Don’t miss this meeting of Women Mean Business, as we learn some amazing stretches to cut down on that daily tension that seems unavoidable.

Space is very limited! Please reserve your seat by September 24th.

Maryland Cybersecurity Investment Tax Credit

The Maryland Department of Commerce is now accepting applications for the Cybersecurity Investment Incentive Tax Credit, designed to attract investment in Maryland cybersecurity companies. The cybersecurity tax credit program, which originally provided a tax credit to companies receiving the investment, was revised through legislation passed during the 2018 Maryland General Assembly session.

Through the tax credit program, venture capitalists, angel investors, and others investing at least $25,000 in a Qualified Maryland Cybersecurity Company (QMCC) may be eligible for a refundable tax credit for 33 percent of the investment. Investors who invest in a cybersecurity business in Allegany, Dorchester, Garrett, or Somerset counties may qualify for a tax credit of 50 percent of their investment.
