Maryland - Netherlands Cybersecurity Soft Landing Program

10/04/2017  | 6:00 - 8:00 PM

Where: bwtech@UMBC, 5520 Research Park Drive, Catonsville, MD 21228, Suite 110

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, several companies from Maryland visit The Hague each year to explore the EU market, and Dutch firms come to the bwtech@UMBC incubator.

This talk 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.

Featuring speakers from Maryland Dept of Commerce, Netherlands Embassy, bwtech@UMBC, and Ausley Associates.

Event organized by Baltimore-Rotterdam Sister City Committee, NACCWM, Maryland Dept of Commerce, and bwtech@UMBC.
