Corprenect Survey: Respond by October 15

The College of Southern Maryland, TEDCO, Inncuvate and the University of Maryland have partnered to bring Corprenect to Southern Maryland. The Corprenect Program connects innovators and entrepreneurs with corporations in Maryland for technology development projects that drive innovation.

We are looking for innovative corporations who have technology challenges they are trying to solve. Supported by funding from TEDCO, the goal of this regional partnership is to engage entrepreneurs and innovators, and advance technologies services and solutions for interested corporations. Innovators benefit by gaining a clear path to the expertise, resources and opportunities offered by corporations. Corporations benefit by engaging in low-cost, low-risk R&D with innovators through a structured program catered to their individual needs. A streamlined process for engagement benefits both sides.

If you are a corporate leader looking for the best and brightest talent to solve a complex problem, and are interested in working with entrepreneurs and small companies towards a solution, then complete the attached survey.

Survey responses are being accepted through October 15, 2018. We are looking to build a pipeline of corporate participants. One corporation will be selected for participation in our second pilot. Selection criteria will be based on the company’s ability do define a challenge and provide advice and guidance to the entrepreneur teams.

Following selection the Corprenect team will work with your company to develop a framework for engaging innovators that can drive solutions towards your corporation’s challenge.
