Columbia-based TEDCO has released new episodes of its virtual video podcast series hosted by CEO Troy LeMaile-Stovall, TEDCO Talks. The series features LeMaile-Stovall interviewing various thought leaders with connections to Maryland’s innovation ecosystem. 

Launched in the fall of 2020, these conversations have continued to provide a platform for Maryland’s entrepreneurs to learn more about the various resources and thought leaders supporting the community. The videos use a “fireside chat” format to cover various topics, such as advice to small businesses dealing with COVID-19, available funding programs and benefits, diversity and inclusion, and more. 

The interviews have been with leaders from a variety of organizations – including area companies, county economic development corporations, chambers, higher education and technology councils – about the emerging trends, challenges and opportunities facing our region.
