TEDCO (Maryland Technology Development Corporation) provides entrepreneurs in the state of Maryland with critical early stage funding, resources, and connections that technology startups need to thrive. Many university-based entrepreneurs have benefitted from Maryland Innovation Initiative, a funding program for IP-based university startups. In September 2020 TEDCO announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Troy LeMaile-Stovall as Chief Executive Officer/Executive Director. Mr. LeMaile-Stovall has over 25 years of experience in the fields of investment management, higher education, telecommunications, information/communication technology, management consulting, and non-profit leadership/management. Please join us for a Fireside Chat session with Mr. LeMaile-Stovall to learn about his vision for TEDCO programs and in supporting and strengthening the state of Maryland innovation ecosystem.
