Meet The Staff

Dedicated to entrepreneurial assistance and guided by board members appointed from Maryland's entrepreneurial community, TEDCO is comprised of an experienced professional staff.

MEET THE staff

TEDCO provides Mentoring, Funding, and Networking opportunities to Entrepreneurs for the accelerated success of an innovation economy in Maryland and beyond.


TEDCO provides mentoring and strategic guidance to portfolio companies by supporting the refinement of an entrepreneurial concept into a viable commercial enterprise and by assisting entrepreneurs and start-ups in managing their funding and accomplishing objectives necessary to obtain more substantial follow-on investment.


TEDCO provides funding in the early stages of entrepreneurial activity when an innovative idea is being developed to demonstrate marketable value, or has been developed but the start-up does not yet have sufficient proof of concept or revenue achievements to warrant more substantial investment from angel or venture capital funds, and when early-stage companies are attempting to broaden the marketable reach of their proven concept and need greater investment assistance to expand.


TEDCO has established a vast network of relationships between research universities, federal laboratories, entrepreneurs and investors that offers unparalleled access to key members of Maryland’s entrepreneurial community.
