Growing your business in Montgomery County starts with #MoCo365

Montgomery County, Maryland has so many great reasons to grow business from our bustling location just a few miles from the nation’s capital. To showcase the many business advantages, MCEDC is embarking on an exciting #MoCo365 campaign to showcase the many events, opportunities, and resources the county has to offer. Visit to track all the exciting developments.

As your business champions, we bring a strong level of service to our growing community as expansion and retention continues to be our top priority. MCEDC engages with businesses across the county to add value and remove barriers to fuel success.  

We are partnering in initiatives to enhance smart business growth in Cybersecurity, BioHealth, IT and other key industries, and helping a range of businesses from start-ups to industry leaders. What happens here changes the world. Our participation in summer outreach efforts includes the SelectUSA Summit, a high profile international event that promotes foreign direct investment. We’re also big on Bio, participating in the Bio International Convention as we bring more life sciences energy and companies to our expanding roster.

I write this from our fantastic new 10,000 square foot office that we share with Visit Montgomery and WorkSource Montgomery. A greener, more energy efficient work space, the open floor plan encourages collaboration and helps to strengthen our mission to increase the county’s competitive edge.

The future starts here and we’re here to show you how.
