Rural Maryland Council (RMC)
RMC brings together citizens, community-based organizations, federal, state, county and municipal government officials as well as representatives of the for-profit and nonprofit sectors to collectively address the needs of Rural Maryland communities. RMC is the main funding sponsor for The Edge Accelerator.
Read more about RMC's involvement in this projectRead More
The Edge is launched with the help of the entire community, and with special gratitude and perseverance of these six founding partners.
The Edge would not be here without the tireless help from all the Community. Here are our Community MVPs.
Programs like these not only provide guidance and education to existing startups, but also promote formation of new companies. There is a strong initiative among federally funded labs to license, further develop and ultimately commercialize certain technologies from their IP portfolios. Licensing to startup companies is definitely one way to go about this
The Accelerator is involving the entire community; there are too many partners to name. That’s what makes it special and unique. And the community is really important, because entrepreneurs need connections more than they need anything elseKathie Callahan Brady, FITCI President/CEO
