Prince George’s County EDC Partners with The Tech Council of Maryland


Largo, MD – The Prince George’s County Economic Development Corporation, in partnership with the Prince George’s Community College (PGCC) and the Prince George’s County Office of Information Technology (OIT), announced an agreement with the Tech Council of Maryland (TCM) to create a joint membership.

The Tech Council of Maryland is the largest technology trade association in the state of Maryland, whose mission is to promote the technology industry and to create an environment where technology companies can collaborate, grow, succeed and thrive.

This partnership will allow the EDC, PGCC and OIT to collaborate with TCM in creating a County technology network.  This network will help with recruitment, marketing and co-branding efforts, and help to grow membership of local companies in TCM.  In addition to membership in TCM for EDC, PGCC and OIT, this agreement will provide, at no additional cost, a one-year membership to all start-up technology companies in the EDC’s Technology Assistance Center (TAC).  TCM will hold at least two technology events each year in Prince George’s County, in partnership with EDC, PGCC and OIT.

"Prince George’s County has a vibrant but underappreciated technology business sector," said Prince George's County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III.  "This MOU with the Technology Council of Maryland is all about partnership and building on the existing strength of the TCM to bring their programs and expertise to this County.  Working with TCM, EDC will have more tools to support our efforts to grow, recruit and retain businesses that will create the jobs and industry of tomorrow."

The EDC provides services to help retain and expand Prince George’s County businesses; promotes and markets the County’s assets to businesses seeking to locate to the County or relocate within the County; and, assists in the development of a diverse workforce for emerging growth sectors.

 “We are pleased to be able to broaden the services that the EDC offers our local technology companies through this partnership with TCM,” said Gwen S. McCall, President and CEO of the EDC. “With TCM’s strong business management services, especially those related to technology companies, we will be able to create economic development opportunities and promote STEM opportunities.”
