They come from places as far away as Ghana, Iraq, Rwanda, Kenya, India, Bolivia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. They are small business owners toiling away, doing what is necessary to make it in Maine, while giving back to a community that has welcomed them without hesitation.
In partnership with Bangor Savings Bank, we are proud to bring to the region “Elevating Voices,” a new series that celebrates diverse businesses, and their importance to Maine’s economy. Over the course of six weeks beginning April 29th, a dozen business owners will be featured in heartwarming, inspiring, and provocative stories that shine a light on the value of diversity and its positive impact on our communities, culture, and economy.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to all of our sponsors including MTI, Maine DECD, Kennebec Savings Bank, Eaton Peabody, Hannaford, Martin’s Point, Albin, Randall and Bennett, First Park, Sutherland Weston, and Thomas College.
