MEET THE staff

TEDCO works with a growing network of Laboratory Researchers, Entrepreneurs, Start-Ups, Early Stage Companies, Business Incubators, Private Investors and Legislators interested in fostering innovative economic development in our region.

TEDCO is an organization that strives to be the lead source for entrepreneurial business assistance and seed funding for the development of start-up companies in Maryland’s innovation economy and beyond.


The adrenaline of risk and the excitement of discovery are the fuel of entrepreneurial innovation. TEDCO’s objective is to contain the risk within a set of guide lines that lead entrepreneurs and start-ups to the next stage of funding, and the next level of achievement.


TEDCO continues to value the public funding from the Governor and the Maryland General Assembly and strives to translate this funding into an ever larger economic impact in the region’s innovation economy.
