    Three companies affiliated with Mtech's Technology Advancement Program (TAP) are among 18 finalists for the ninth annual Maryland Incubator Company of the Year Awards, organizers announced on Monday.

    Current TAP company AccuStrata, as well as recent TAP graduates Lurn and Traffax are finalists.

    The awards, which recognize the achievements of current and graduate companies within Maryland’s incubators, will be made in various categories. Previous years’ categories included Life Science Company of the Year, Information Technology Company of the Year, Technology Service Company of the Year, Homeland Security Company of the Year, New Incubator Company of the Year, Technology Transfer Company of the Year, and Graduate Company of the Year.

    Winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Center Club in Baltimore on June 16, 2009.

    "During an economic slowdown, it is more important than ever to recognize and encourage innovation and entrepreneurship. The skills and ideas of dynamic young companies will contribute to building the economy in Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic. We received applications from Maryland's most successful and forward-thinking early-stage companies, making the finalists selection very difficult," said Tanya Dobash Berlage, a partner at Saul Ewing and Chair of the firm's Life Sciences practice group. "As a founding sponsor, we applaud these companies for their accomplishments and thank all of our talented applicants."
