A Baltimore-based nonprofit is working with U.S. Cyber Command to bring business, government and academic leaders together to work on new technology.

The Maryland Innovation and Security Institute (MISI) recently received a five-year partner contract from Fort Meade–based USCYBERCOM aimed at working on technology in a declassified setting.

As part of the effort, MISI plans to create a new center in Columbia called DreamPort. Located at 7000 Columbia Gateway Drive, the 20,000 sq. ft. space will have coworking, lab and meeting space. It will provide daily access, and host regular events for rapid prototyping and sharing ideas.

Bringing together entrepreneurs, small businesses and academics to work with the government, can help build tools that fit the “future needs and aspirations” for USCYBERCOM, which is the command within the U.S. Department of Defense overseeing cyber operations, said MISI Director Karl Gumtow.

“We will be working with companies from across the nation and the world to bring their products and technologies to the DreamPort,” said Gumtow, who is a cofounder of CyberPoint International.

In addition to the center, MISI is also looking to identify a network of cybersecurity industry partners and create an information portal called “DreamFinder.”

It’s a further sign that the startups and institutions surrounding the Fort have a role to play in its future.
