NMTC: where members collaborate; key connections thrive; and opportunity expands!
The NMTC (Northeastern Maryland Technology Council) connects the most successful Technology Companies in the world, hundreds of energetic Growing Enterprises, Government and Academic leaders into a collective force to accelerate economic growth, expand the STEM Educated Workforce and drive technology and innovation in Maryland.
We are Maryland’s fast growing technology council with over 200 members and advocates providing access to technology, industry, academic and government leaders in Northeastern Maryland – including eastern Baltimore County, Harford County and Cecil County.
Created in 1990, organized in 1991, and operational in 1992, the NMTC connects member companies, organizations and individuals to their peers and influential decision makers through power networking, informative workshops, monthly member’s speaker meetings and other collaborative initiatives. We are focused to accomplish the following:
- Creating collaborative programs to advance business, technology and innovation. The Inventor’s Portal inspires inventors yearning to convert ideas into reality. The TECH CONN3CT workshops are collaborative environments where the potential of technology transfer is unleashed. Our Driving Technology Summit exposes and shares the game changing technologies otherwise siloed away in government, university and industry settings.
- Building and inspiring our future workforce. Programs like Science Café, STEM Summits for educators and STEM Nights & Beyond have helped light the spark for STEM for over 6000 students to date. Now, in its 6th year, STEM Nights & Beyond has become a nationally recognized STEM program.
- Connnecting business, government and industry leaders. NMTC’s frequent networking/education programs, GOLF4STEM tournament, WOW! World of Wine, our annual Visionary Awards Gala and our highly-referenced, web-based Tech Directory are a few ways NMTC connects leaders from the defense contracting sector, federal, state and local government, and industry.
Overall, the NMTC ‘Drives Technology’ in creating a perpetuating process where technology industries connect, collaborate, grow, prosper and sustain thseir community.
