Hagerstown Community College's Technical Innovation Center (TIC), the county's full-service business incubator, helps early-stage technology firms grow and thrive during the firms' first years of operation.
Opened in 1994, the center's mission is to foster higher-wage employment opportunities within the county and to assist technology and manufacturing businesses by providing one-on-one business development and strategic management services.
The center rents facilities to resident firms and provides minigrants to firms to secure services for intellectual property protection, market studies, prototype development work and management training.
