Making Connections and Promoting New Collaborations
MCEDC facilitated meetings on September 25 between our state and County public officials and a group of our local businesses. State partners, including Secretary of Information Technology, Michael G. Leahy, met with some of our local businesses to create new partnerships and networks.
Infosys Public Services
Spiros connected Secretary Leahy and his colleagues to Infosys Public Services, a major state employer and global leader that has a corporate headquarters and delivery center in Rockville. These connections help further conversations about how InfoSys – and other Montgomery County companies – can strengthen their ties and business services to the state.
Rockville Innovation Center, part of the BioHealth Innovation Network
Secretary Leahy also connected with many companies at the Rockville Innovation Center (RIC), an outstanding incubator with Class A office space. RIC provides companies access to a variety of resources: shared office space, market research databases, mentoring and networking opportunities. Secretary Leahy and his colleagues met directly with BioHealth Innovation Network employees and RIC resident companies, including the following:
Cyber space: Inky
Probiotic Drug delivery: ExeGi Pharma
Staffing Company working on Telehealth platform: Healable
Pharma: Reveragen BioPharma
Health IT: Carradora Health
Imaging Device: fNIR
Public Health Information: Athena Infonomics
LabCorp partnership M3 Information
EdTech: Speak Agent
The meetings created a great opportunity for interaction and gaining knowledge on both sides – creating future prospects for business collaboration. Secretary Leahy provided updates and insights about important state initiatives that affect local businesses.
