The mission of the University of Maryland's Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute (Mtech) is to educate the next generation of technology entrepreneurs, create successful technology ventures, and connect Maryland companies with university resources to help them succeed.
Bring us your great ideas, your challenges, your desire to learn...
At the Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute (Mtech), we focus on two
things: possibilities and results. We offer programs, courses, workshops and
competitions to help aspiring entrepreneurs learn how to bring their ideas
and products to the world. We help faculty, student, and regional
entrepreneurs create successful ventures. We help companies solve vital
challenges and develop top-selling products that improve and save lives by
connecting them with resources to succeed.
Our results: among our core programs, we have had a $25.7 billion impact on
the Maryland economy since 1983. Top-selling products such as MedImmune’s
Synagis®, which protects infants from a deadly respiratory disease, and
Hughes Communications’ HughesNet®, which brings satellite-based,
high-speed Internet access to the world, were developed through or enhanced
by our programs. Billion dollar companies such as Martek Biosciences and
Digene Corporation graduated from our incubator.
