This year, Greenlight Maine has a new home on Maine Public Television. In addition to its original, Head-to-Head Series and its College Edition, Greenlight Maine is proud to announce Elevating Voices, a new series that celebrates minority-owned business owners.  Descriptions and schedules for each portion of this season’s show are below.

In partnership with Bangor Savings Bank, we are proud to bring to the region “Elevating Voices,” a new series that celebrates minority-owned and racially diverse businesses, and their importance to Maine’s economy.

Growing Maine...One Dream At A Time

Greenlight Maine’s regular program is a competitive reality television show that consists of 13 episodes featuring 26 contestants. Ranging from entrepreneurs to established businesses, contestants vie for cash prizes to take their products and services to the next level. Each episode features two companies who pitch their business ideas to a panel of judges who evaluate and ask questions about each contestant’s background and their plans for growth. The panelists share their supportive feedback and ideas with the contestants before casting their vote with host Julene Gervais.
