TEDCO Announces Collaboration to Develop AI-Enabled Entrepreneurial Resource

New Online Tool will Benefit Maryland's Innovation Ecosystem

COLUMBIA, Md. (November 2, 2020)TEDCO, Maryland’s economic engine for technology companies, announced today it has selected EcoMap Technologies, Inc to develop an AI-enabled platform for gathering information about all of Maryland’s entrepreneurial resources and funding information in one place.

The State’s ecosystem is filled with various organizations, incubators, accelerators, investment funds, events, and other entities providing valuable support to entrepreneurs. These resources can be difficult to locate at times and, as a result, entrepreneurs can experience difficulty in locating the support they need. 

In an effort to address this challenge, TEDCO (the Maryland Technology Development Corporation), the Maryland Department of Commerce and the University System of Maryland are collaborating to implement a new, comprehensive web-based solution that will aggregate tech development resource, asset, and support services information across thousands of websites relevant to our ecosystem. Users will be able to easily explore and locate reliable, up-to-date information on incubators, accelerators, grants and funding opportunities, events, mentoring, and more, based on their specific needs related to their stage of growth, industry sector, founder type, or type of business.
