About Us


The Southern Maryland region comprised of St. Mary’s, Calvert and Charles Counties is not only the fastest growing region of Maryland, it is a hotbed of business and entrepreneurial activity!  To facilitate the formation of a local entrepreneurial eco-system and culture, Energetics Technology Center (ETC) along with the assistance of many partners in the local community, have coordinated this website as one means to connect businesses and entrepreneurs into the high pace of the a technical community.  To all those who are seeking to fully engage and commercialize an existing IP opportunity or whether you are looking to break in and just mingle with the who’s who of future business leaders in our region – this portal is a means to get there – and fast!

The vision for our entrepreneurial community is lofty – we seek cutting edge people and ideas to join in with the vast and existing entrepreneurial possibilities, endeavors and infrastructure in our region.  Whether that means testing your product or prototype in leading-edge facilities – such as the labs at Patuxent River Naval Air station or connecting with sharp local inventors – your timing has never been better to take part.  If you are a technology related business seeking IP to commercialize you’ve really hit the jackpot and can check out the Opportunities tab on this site!  If you are searching for other regional possibilities, come and seek us out and you will likely find all the right reasons to base here in Maryland.  There are certainly a vast number of assistance options to help you grow and connect your business, such as TechFire – a technology business incubator system that supports our region, or SMIT – the Southern Maryland Innovation and Tech meetup, or perhaps Pax Partnership that connects local businesses through education and learning.  This site is a primary link to our community!

We look forward to hosting you and please contact us so we can get to know you!
