Unique Resources and Collaboration

TU Incubator encourages engagement and collaboration between organizations to augment the resources needed to establish a strong business foundation. We work closely with our network of community partners, service providers, and experienced professionals to add value to our members and help them succeed.

Nestled in the heart of the Mid-Atlantic region, Baltimore County is Maryland's second-largest job center and a prime location to start a business. Support from the Baltimore County Department of Economic and Workforce Development provides value to TU Incubator and its member companies.

An EdTech Focus

TU Incubator supports the largest cluster of edtech companies in Maryland. EdTech (education technology) is the platforms, tools, and digital initiatives used to improve learning and administrative outcomes and efficiencies, including end users in early childhood, K-12, postsecondary, special, corporate, and workforce education.

Since the 1990s, Baltimore has grown to be an EdTech hub. Today, with a stronger network of investors, educators, and entrepreneurs, this growth has spread beyond Charm City to encompass the entire Chesapeake region.

Towson University is Maryland’s top producer of teachers and constantly works to enhance the educational experience, including integration of technological advancements. TU Incubator leverages TU’s resources and reputation in teacher preparation and education to help our member companies succeed.
