The Hotel at the University of Maryland


TEDCO created the fair to connect entrepreneurs and small business owners in any industry from Maryland’s underserved communities to technology companies, resources, trainings, and networking opportunities to grow their business. U.S. Senate Committee on Small Business & Entrepreneurship Chair Ben Cardin worked closely with TEDCO to create the fair, and he will deliver a keynote address. John F. Fleming, mid-Atlantic regional administrator for the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), will speak about the SBA and the resources provided to small businesses in the region. The Tech Fair will be hosted by TEDCO’s CEO Troy LeMaile-Stovall.

Small businesses looking to broaden their footprint and increase future sales can interact with larger, established tech companies, like Grow with Google, Meta, TikTok, Square, Microsoft, eBay, PayPal, Amazon Web Services, and Amazon, to learn about trainings, online platforms for sales, advertising techniques, cloud services, and more. Women and diverse startup founders and business owners who traditionally have been underserved by the entrepreneurial ecosystem are encouraged to attend and share news of the free fair with their networks.
