Cyber Incubator

The Cyber Incubator@bwtech is a unique, innovative business incubation program that delivers business and technical support to early stage companies providing cybersecurity-related products and services. The incubator is located in a Class A office suite at the bwtech@UMBC North, adjacent to the campus of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC).

Cyber Incubator tenants enjoy business support services from bwtech@UMBC’s experienced entrepreneurial services team, robust and redundant data connectivity, shared reception areas and conference rooms, and a strategic location along I-95 in a federal HUBZone and state Enterprise Zone only 5 minutes from BWI Airport and less than 15 miles from Ft. Meade and the National Security Agency. Clients have access to the many resources of the UMBC campus—day care, dining, training and fitness facilities.

Clients also have the opportunity to collaborate with the talented faculty and students of UMBC, currently ranked #1 among Maryland colleges and universities in the number of computer science and IT graduates. In addition to being a national leader in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) education, UMBC has been designated a “Center of Academic Excellence” by the NSA and Department of Homeland Security.
