“Maine’s economy is made up of thousands of small and innovative businesses. We’re constantly inspired by the success stories we hear from entrepreneurs. We want to see those numbers grow and more businesses succeed. The excitement surrounding the competition only substantiates the strength of the entrepreneurial spirit in Maine”
