Founders join the Cyber Incubator to take their startup to the next level.

Beginning in 2010, the Cyber Incubator has been assisting entrepreneurs as they turn ideas into scalable products with expanding revenue. Members of the Cyber Incubator benefit from UMBC’s longstanding educational and research support of the DoD and IC. In turn, the founders at the Cyber Incubator are a diverse group whose backgrounds span academia, government, and industry. The result is an incubator rich with experience where bwtech staff guide startups to impactful resources, and founders support their peer companies.

Startup support is not one size fits all. Entrepreneurs are able to access educational programming, networking opportunities, and a stable of accomplished advisors.

Programming topics include but are not limited to:

Fundraising, Buyer Introductions, Sales Training, Go to Market Strategy, and Content Marketing.
