TechPort is Southern Maryland’s new business incubator located at Aviation Technology Park at St. Mary’s County Regional Airport.

Its mission is to accelerate innovation and assist entrepreneurs to create and build new tech-based companies. The organization was initiated and supported by the United States Navy, St. Mary’s County, University of Maryland, and Maryland Technology Development Corporation.

“When you win, our stakeholders and our supporting community win,” says TechPort Director Tommy Luginbill.

The incubator endeavors to help diversify the local business environment of Southern Maryland. Operated under contract by the University of Maryland, TechPort targets startup and early-stage companies that specialize in unmanned and autonomous systems and commercialization of Navy technology. The incubator offers premier office and development space, including high-quality 3-D printers, a general machine shop, strategic advising, and expanded funding opportunities.
