If you’re a business owner (or want to be!) in the Howard County, Maryland area, check out the Howard County Economic Development Authority (HCEDA). They have resources and events to support new and existing business owners.
The HCEDA includes the HTC (Howard Tech Council) which offers a monthly Membership 101 event, usually on the first Friday of each month, to introduce programs available through the HTC and includes a free lunch.
You can join the HCEDA/HTC email list to receive newsletters listing upcoming speakers and networking events.
If you’re not sure whether you want to purchase an HTC membership, you can subscribe to the email list to see the type of programs available. Many events are open to non-members, but at a higher price than members.
