Gateway Services

TEDCO Gateway Services are intended to assist a promising start-up company accelerate its path toward key milestones.  Our Gateway Services take several different forms, depending on the stage of the company and an assessment of its likely path forward. The TEDCO Gateway Team collaborates with the start-up company and its other advisors to create an advisory solution that complements and augments the other assistance being received by the entrepreneur.


Growing great companies takes more than money and Maryland’s entrepreneurs repeatedly express the need for assistance in certain very specific areas.  To help meet that need TEDCO has partnered with a series of consultants that have current, relevant experience in one or more of these specific areas.  This curated set of Network Advisors brings its broad and diversified depth of experience to bear on the unique needs of Maryland’s start-up companies – the entire effort is dedicated to helping the State’s technology-based entrepreneurs reach their full potential.

To request a Network Advisor please complete the following request form: Note, companies requesting assistance from TEDCO’s Network Advisors must have an established company that is beyond the idea stage. To help you assess the stage of your company, please answer the questions provided on the following link:
