Where do the ideas come from that become the most desirable, useful, and world changing products, services, or software? Actually, they come from you, your neighbor, a problem solver, a student, just about anyone.

Following on the success of the Inventor’s Portal Workshops, TU Incubator will once again partner with the Northeastern Maryland Technology Council (NMTC) to bring a new series of workshops to the Towson Branch of the Baltimore County Public Library System.

The Tech-Start Workshop series is a weekly workshop for anyone who ever said, “I have an idea!” Facilitated by experts in their fields, these concise, hands-on workshops will leave you inspired, encouraged and motivated! Note: Each workshop is limited to 20 participants, in order to offer individual attention.

Tech-Start Workshop Series

Tuesdays, 6:30–7:30 PM
