We view this as a timely opportunity to engage more deeply with the medical device community in greater Baltimore and Maryland."

The LaunchPort, the accelerator portion of the project, will be located with The Factory manufacturing space. Officials say it will be include assembly, clean room, laboratory and administrative support facilities. Quinn adds "the residents will have full access to and ability to incorporate these tools into their businesses - a critical step to gain regulatory approval. We've already had discussions with several candidates and are extremely excited about this opportunity to make these capabilities available to the area."
