Welcome to the Maryland Tech Council

We are a collaborative community that is actively engaged in building strong technology and life science industries by supporting the efforts of our individual members. On December 30, 2016, the Tech Council of Maryland and the Chesapeake Regional Tech Council merged to create the Maryland Tech Council (MTC). We are the largest technology trade association in the state of Maryland with over 600 members and we provide value by giving them a forum to learn, share, and connect. The valuable resources we provide to our members help them reach their full potential as vital members of their communities.

Members of the Maryland Tech Council are provided with educational programming taught by industry leaders with a focus on key topics, advocacy at the state and national levels, and a variety of opportunities to participate in both large and small events. Members also have access to our Cost Savings Program where they can choose from our list of reputable companies that provide discounts for business services. We offer an array of benefits that have been chosen to help your business grow.

MTC is also able to serve the tech and biotech communities with assets like the Maryland Health Care Product Development Corporation (MHCPDC) and the MdBioLab program. MHCPDC’s goal is to stimulate growth of the biomedical industry in the state through "early stage" investment with promising Maryland biomedical and medical technology companies. The MdBioLab program supports a mobile bioscience laboratory that visits Maryland high schools to teach science literacy.
