The Bowie Business Innovation Center (Bowie BIC) is a diverse, entrepreneurial business accelerator program where growth-oriented technology companies and government contractors in the City of Bowie and Prince George’s County access mentoring, technical assistance, counseling, and connections to partners and capital to accelerate their business growth. Headquartered at the Center for Business at Bowie State University, Bowie BIC is the only business accelerator in Maryland located at a historically black college (HBCU).

Over the last 12 months, Bowie BIC’s 14 accelerator program clients report generating 71 jobs, $3.1 million in revenues, and supporting 8 internships for Bowie State University students. In January 2017, Bowie BIC launched a second office location, called Bowie BIC NEXT, for graduates of its 36-month business accelerator program to keep those businesses growing and thriving in the City of Bowie.
Bowie BIC is a Maryland non-profit organization funded through public/private partnerships with the Prince George’s County Council, the City of Bowie, Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO) and the corporate community.
