About the Builder Fund

The Pre-seed Builder Fund (or Builder Fund) was created to financially and operationally support the development of startup companies run by entrepreneurs who demonstrate a socially or economically disadvantaged background that hinders access to traditional forms of capital and executive networks at the pre-seed stage. Companies selected for a Builder Fund qualify for investment and/or executive support to better position the company to receive follow-on, professional investment. 

The Builder Fund differentiates itself by identifying exceptional investment opportunities that are often overlooked by traditional funding organizations, by advancing the development of those opportunities. This program supports TEDCO’s overall mission of identifying, investing in, and helping to build great, Maryland-based companies that grow and last.

About the Builder Fund Roundtable

TEDCO manages a series of professionally facilitated and themed executive roundtables.  The Builder Fund Roundtable is structured to draw participants from the founders and C-level executives of TEDCO’s Bloc3 Builder Fund companies.  In general, the roundtable meets twice monthly and meetings are held at the TEDCO headquarters or are rotated among the various participant locations around the state.  

All TEDCO Roundtables represent an opportunity for peer-to-peer learning combined with mutual problem solving and support.
