In his first public speaking engagement since election, Maryland Governor-Elect Larry Hogan made closing remarks at the Entrepreneur Expo. He had very optimistic words for the start-up community. Saying, “You’re going to be a priority for us. Something we are going to focus on like a laser beam. We are going to work very closely with TECDO; with all you great entrepreneurs in the room. As of Jan. 21, Maryland will be open for business.” I see this as an indicator that the new governor will support our start-up business through TEDCO and other initiatives such as the Invest Maryland Challenge and the Maryland Innovation Initiative.
Kudos to TEDCO for offering such a top-notch event for the start-up community!
