Next to Washington, DC, Maryland benefits from the U.S. government’s enormous investment in medical, cyber, IT, defense and other technologies and all their spinoffs, just like Israel!
In health-tech, Maryland is home to ALL the relevant government R&D and public policy agencies with their tens of billions of dollars of research, grants, purchases and partnerships, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS), and the military medical research centers at Walter Reed Hospital and Fort Detrick.
The private sector has taken notice with AstraZeneca/MedImmune and GSK’s Vaccine Division building major centers of excellence in the state.
And the world-class academic centers at the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University are producing an immensely educated workforce.
So, the market’s here, the workforce is here, and the research is here. In other words, the future is in Maryland!
It’s the same in IT, big data, cyber, defense and homeland security with the U.S. Cyber Command, the National Security Agency (NSA), NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and the three largest databases in the world at the U.S. Social Security Administration, the U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. National Security Agency in Maryland. Maryland knows how to handle data and the technology to develop, analyze and secure it.
On top of all this, just a short drive away are the White House, the Capitol, the Pentagon and the rest of the American government, the largest customer of high tech goods and services in the world.
