“Greenlight Maine has been a great addition to Maine’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. It provides an opportunity for founders from all over Maine to showcase their companies and celebrates the risk-taking and persistence needed to be a successful entrepreneur. It also gives the featured companies great exposure to a TV and online audience of potential customers and investors, as well as terrific feedback from the judges and mentors.”

In turn, that creates more future MEMIC customers.”
“At DECD, we work with new and existing businesses from all over the state. Through our partnership with Greenlight Maine, we have been able to reach many new entrepreneurs, and that list keeps growing! Grand prize or not, we want to keep working with these businesses so we can grow Maine’s economy, create new jobs, and attract new investment to build a more prosperous Maine.”
Entrepreneurship by its very nature and definition suggests that an above-average level of risk is being taken. Entrepreneurship thrives in those places where risk is mitigated to the highest degree possible. Greenlight Maine has done this by establishing an open dialogue, developing a supportive network of entrepreneurs, assisting providers, and creating a transparent window for the public to look through and view how entrepreneurs create their products and services. It’s way more than a television show. It truly is a movement.
Innovation-driven economic development is a powerful force for our state. We see our support and advocacy for the entrepreneurial spirit come to life through Greenlight Maine and we’re proud to serve as major sponsors alongside some of the finest companies in Maine.
