We are pleased to announce that Jason Stambaugh has been selected as our first Executive Director. Here’s a bit about Jason:

Jason Stambaugh is an enterprising gentleman based in Westminster, Maryland. Since 2009, he has built a variety of companies including Wevival, a web development and online marketing firm, and LaunchGen, an ed tech firm with the ambitious goal of launching the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs through competition and challenge-based learning environments. The projects he is working on are always changing, but they are all driven by his interest in entrepreneurship, technology, and economic development.

Over the years, he’s been blessed to launch and contribute to a variety of local initiatives including Launch Carroll, the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce’s Young Professionals Group, and the Carroll Biz Challenge, a business competition where local entrepreneurs compete to win a $5,000 cash prize.

In addition to his work here at MAGIC, Jason is the Entrepreneur in Residence and Adjunct Faculty at McDaniel College and an Executive Board Member of the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce.

When asked about his new role, Jason said, “I’m honored to be entrusted with the role and responsibility of leading this organization. One of my life’s goals is to build things that will have a lasting impact in Carroll County, creating economic opportunities and prosperity that will enable our community to thrive. I believe that MAGIC has a very important role to play in this story and I’m grateful for the opportunity to be its first leader. I look forward to working with community leaders to incubate companies and entrepreneurs.”
