Event description

Description

Last year, Maryland and The Hague Security Delta in the Netherlands began a multi-year soft landing program to help cybersecurity startups in each country explore business opportunities overseas. Under the program, companies from Maryland visit The Hague, and Dutch firms come to bwtech@UMBC. The 2017 cohort featured four firms from Maryland and five from the Netherlands. Two of those Dutch startups have chosen to open permanent offices in Maryland.

This talk on October 4, to be held at the bwtech@UMBC incubator, will discuss what a soft landing is, the origins of the program, benefits and lessons learned, and how the Maryland Tech sector can continue to expand globally.

Speakers will include representatives of Ausley Associates, bwtech@UMBC, Maryland Department of Commerce, and the Netherlands Embassy.

Registration required. Deadline: September 27. Limited seats available.
