160 views

Published on

This event was held during Baltimore Innovation Week 2017. Maryland and the Netherlands have a multi-year cybersecurity soft landing program to help cybersecurity companies in both countries explore business opportunities overseas. Under the program, a set of Maryland cybersecurity startups go to the Hague Security Delta, the largest security cluster in Europe, each year to learn about the EU market. Dutch firms, in turn, come to bwtech@UMBC to pursue business here.

This panel of speakers discussed what a soft landing is, the origins of the program, benefits and lessons learned, and how the Maryland Tech sector can continue to expand globally. These slides were shown in the background behind the panel speakers; they illustrate advantages of the Netherlands and the city of The Hague for the cybersecurity sector.
