    MTECH Ventures is the Clark School of Engineering's vehicle for entrepreneurship education for technology creators, and venture creation services and resources for entrepreneurs committed to bridging the gap between technical ideas and viable companies. MTECH operates a VentureAccelerator to form and grow companies based on university innovations; as well as a Venture incubator (TAP) to provide funding support, expertise, resources, and infrastructure to regional entrepreneurs. TAP's state-of-the-art incubation headquarters provides emerging companies over 20,000 square feet of fully-furnished office, wet-laboratory, and meeting space. MTECH at the University of Maryland also recently announced the launch of the Chesapeake Bay Seed Capital Fund. The fund, supported by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and administered by MTECH, will invest $250,000 annually over a three-year period into Maryland-based startup companies with innovative technologies that may help improve air and water quality in the Chesapeake Bay area.
