This new initiative unites Maryland’s innovation and corporate communities to solve real-time business challenges​. Participating companies have submitted “challenge statements” and Maryland’s innovation community – including startups, academia, and other small businesses – have the opportunity to pitch potential solutions.

IBM, SC&H Group and Healthworx, the innovation and investment arm of CareFirst BlueCross, BlueShield, have committed to be “Corporate Challengers.”
