Leading Innovation to Market. TEDCO provides resources and connections that early stage technology and life sciences companies need to thrive in Maryland.

Mission

Enhance economic development growth through the fostering of an inclusive entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystem. Discover, invest in, and help build great Maryland based technology companies.

Vision

TEDCO will be the recognized leader for supporting entrepreneurial and innovation development while being the critical central hub of Maryland’s Innovation Ecosystem.

This will be accomplished by administering an integrated platform of success-based programs that support advanced technology development and commercialization from research stages through company formations and growth.

We will collaborate with best-in-class partners and be inclusive of minorities, women and veterans.

We will establish and maintain an investment philosophy that supports both economic development goals and meaningful returns for our stakeholders, and we will help build great Maryland-based companies that grow and last. 

Values

Goal Oriented

We set challenging goals, and strive to achieve them.

 Teamwork

Collaboration allows us to accomplish more than we could individually, across programs, helping us provide more innovative solutions and positive results for our customers.

Execution Focused

We do what we say we are going to do, and we move with a sense of urgency.

Proactivity

We don’t wait for things to happen, we make them happen.  We get out into the market every day seeking opportunities.

Accountability

We hold ourselves personally accountable for our actions, our commitments and our results. And if we see a challenge or problem, we fix it.  Performance measurement to Metrics keeps us honest here.

Integrity

We always act with honesty and truthfulness (even if it’s a difficult message that people do not want to hear), and we never compromise on our values.

 

Customer Satisfaction

The entrepreneur is our customer.  We strive tirelessly to understand the needs of our customers, and deliver solutions that consistently exceed their expectations.
