MAGIC Secured a Federal Build to Scale Grant Nearing $275K. Here’s the Plan

Shortly after Baltimore’s EDA Tech Hubs designation win, Maryland’s innovation community is getting another federal boost.

Joining Delaware and Pittsburgh, last week, the Mid-Atlantic Gigabit Innovation Collaboratory (MAGIC) in Westminster announced its inclusion in the 10th cohort of the federal Build to Scale program grants.

Build to Scale is an annual initiative by the US Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration focused on fostering tech-based economic development. The grants associated with the program aim to boost job opportunities and entrepreneurial ecosystems, particularly in agtech, bioscience, manufacturing and healthtech industries.
