We are excited to announce that Light Point Security has advanced to Round 3 of the InvestMaryland Challenge in the IT category. This places Light Point Security in the final 10 to win an award of $100,000. The InvestMaryland Challenge is a business competition hosted by the State of Maryland. One winner will be selected from each of three categories, and each winner receives $100,000.
A total of 259 companies applied to the challenge. In the first round it was narrowed down to about 20 companies for each category. In the second round it was narrowed down to the top 10 in each category. The third and final round will be judged in a face-to-face interview on Mar 5. Each company will have 15 minutes to pitch their company to a panel of judges, followed by a 10 minute Q&A session. The winner of each category will be announced on April 15 at the Governor’s Cup Awards Ceremony.
There are still a lot of good companies in the running, and we are proud to be among them. Good luck to all the finalists!
