The Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO) has invested a total of $1.3 million in 13 Maryland startups, including six Baltimore city-based businesses, since July 2013.

TEDCO, a creation of the Maryland state legislature in 1998 that uses taxpayer dollars to make investments in early-stage startups, gave each of the 13 startups $100,000 through its Technology Commercialization Fund.

Those startups, from the press release:
