COLUMBIA, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MasterPeace Solutions, a rapidly growing cyber and software company, today announced that the company’s Chief Executive Officer and President, Drew Cohen, has been selected as one of the Top 10 Technology Executives in Maryland by the Baltimore Business Journal’s “Tech 10” awards program. This achievement recognizes 10 outstanding professionals in the technology industry who are making noteworthy contributions to Greater Baltimore’s tech community.
Throughout his career, Mr. Cohen has demonstrated the ability to develop teams of motivated and innovative engineers and align them with a vision for creating new leading-edge technologies. At MasterPeace Solutions’ technology accelerator, MasterPeace LaunchPad, Mr. Cohen focuses on creating opportunities for engineers to become successful entrepreneurs.
MasterPeace LaunchPad reinvents the entire company-creation process, hires engineers working in positions fulfilling government contracts and allows them to work while building new commercial technology businesses. While other accelerators start with investment dollars and look for entrepreneurs to advance a concept, LaunchPad takes on the role of a pre-startup accelerator. With a profitable company behind it, the accelerator is fully empowered and supported by industry influencers, eliminating the need for initial funding and allowing the engineers and entrepreneurs in the program to build up their businesses without the additional strains of unemployment and other potential risks.
“I am honored to have been named to Baltimore Business Journal’s Tech 10 list,” said Drew Cohen. “It is great to see the technology community vastly growing in the Baltimore region and we look forward to continuing to support local engineers and technologists in getting their ideas off the ground and into the market.”
LaunchPad is building advanced technologies that are being turned into commercial, externally funded, technology spin-off businesses contributing to the development of “Silicon Valley East” in the Maryland region. Technologies include, but are not limited to, the industrial Internet of Things, machine learning-based cyber analytics, novel open-source software development communities, large scale data analytics, and much more. The accelerator seeks to unleash the imagination and talent of top engineers while creating compelling recognition and reward opportunities for engineers in the local community.
Mr. Cohen and the other Tech 10 honorees will receive their awards at a celebratory event on September 21 where Jen Meyer, CEO of Betamore and a Tech 10 winner last year, will be the keynote speaker. All honorees will be featured in the September 22 issue of the Baltimore Business Journal.
