Howard County 3-D print lab is about more than making cool stuff [Baltimore Business Journal]: “A wall full of printed plastic tools, machine pieces and even a skull shows that in the six months since it officially opened, 3D Maryland’s printing lab has become popular. But program director Jan Baum sees the lab as much more than a place to create cool stuff.”

Advance Maryland selects 8 companies for ‘economic gardening’ [MDBIZ News]: “In its second year, Advance Maryland has selected an additional eight companies to participate in “economic gardening” activities, Governor Martin O’Malley, Lt. Governor Anthony Brown and the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development (DBED) Secretary Dominick Murray announced this week.”

Here’s why it makes sense for casinos to have incubators and universities [Baltimore Business Journal]: “For most entrepreneurs, casinos don’t come to mind when they’re looking for office space. But incubator space for tech companies and manufacturers is part of the $750 million casino Cordish Cos. and Penn National Gaming are proposing in New York.”
