Join our Executive Advisor Program

Get world-class business advice at no charge

The Maryland Tech Council has launched a new initiative to pair local executives like you with a world-class life sciences or technology executive advisor at no cost to scale your company in a marketplace rapidly changing due to COVID-19. 

Our Business Continuity Task Force is comprised of tested business leaders from Snyder Cohn, Truist (previously SunTrust), TEDCO, Applied Biomimetic, and more. These executive advisors have agreed to share their expertise in finance, operations, technology, engineering, and more with local executives at no cost to help them develop and execute resilient business plans in 2021 and beyond.

How it Works: 

  • The advisor program is open to life science and technology executives in Montgomery County with more than one full-time employee and less than 250 employees. 
  • You’ll get one-on-one access to a seasoned executive advisor who best fits your company’s needs. 
  • Highly experienced advisors provide support and guidance at no charge to the companies.
  • Terms of the engagements are open to accommodate ongoing needs of each company.
  • You will be invited to join a peer group to network, share and learn with colleagues facing similar challenges and opportunities.

How to Join: 

Top executives in the region have already joined and are reaping the benefits. Here’s what one participating executive says:

“With the constant growth, I have found the need for advice in areas I have not been trained in. MTC’s entrepreneur mentors have provided valuable and honest feedback and direction. In just three months, I have been able to focus on critical areas and implement tools recommended by the team of mentors.”
