"Incubators will be the driving force of community because each already has a strong nucleus from which to build, community members that already interact with others based upon technology and most importantly, supporting interaction with peers, mentors and advisors, which is the most valuable contribution an incubator can make to assure the success of its companies.  This spirit of collaboration and community building has already been evidenced by the sharing of best practices among the incubators and an annual awards ceremony celebrating incubator companies from around the State.  With this spirit of collaboration and community building, it’s hard not to get excited.  TEDCO certainly is!”

President and Executive Director of TEDCO

"MBIA is an excellent organization that brings incubator managers together to discuss best practices.  These shared  best practices has created a strong network of incubators (more than 20) across the state. This does not exist in most states.

Maryland incubators have contributed greatly to our local and national economy by helping startup companies thrive and survive in tough economic times.  Many Maryland incubator graduate companies have gone on to become  major national and internationally known companies, contributing to Maryland's job base and tax base."
