Maryland Passes Venture Capital Bill and Releases Innovation-Oriented Five-Year Plan

April 20, 2011

Last week, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley released the results of 18 months of work by the Maryland Economic Development Commission (MEDC), laying out the state's strategy for economic growth over the next five years. MEDC's five-year plan provides many economic development policy recommendations, but lists innovation, commercialization and entrepreneurship as the first three foundations for growth. Part of this strategy includes the implementation of InvestMaryland, a recently passed initiative that would generate more than $70 million for seed and growth stage companies.
