ITnova’s Story

When CEO Carolina Seldes immigrated to the U.S. in 2011 from Colombia, Latin America, she did not speak English. She worked hard to quickly learn the language after she arrived, taking classes at Towson University and enrolling at Anne Arundel Community College (AACC) in 2012. She always had dreams of becoming an entrepreneur.
While a student at AACC, Carolina saw a poster for a Business Plan Competition and thought it was the perfect challenge. She developed a detailed plan for ITnova, submitted it and won the competition! As a result, ITnova had its first office at AACC as part of their incubator program. Shortly after two years, ITnova won its first contract with a $25M ceiling, which enabled ITnova to graduate from the incubator program and move into its own office space. In the following four years, ITnova became a Master Contract Holder for Maryland CATS+, and won its first contract as a Prime with the Maryland Department of Health (MDH). The sky is the limit for ITnova!
