Aquaculture isn't Scary. It's Necessary
We’re pleased to be bringing back one of our favorite annual events, "Aquaculture Isn't Scary, It's Necessary". We do this each year around Halloween and we convene people, companies, and project leaders for a fun and educational conversation focused on aquaculture. The format is simple and engaging, with networking, a panel discussion, and an audience led Q&A. This year, we're encouraging COSTUMES for those that want to get into the Halloween spirit.

THE BLUE ECONOMY SERIES
The “Entrepreneurship in the Blue Economy” series was created to share the stories of ocean-focused ventures in Maine. As is true with business incubation in general, this series endeavors to give both budding and established businesspeople a platform to share their story, an opportunity to cite particular areas of need, and an environment to connect with a supportive and engaged audience. Each meeting will vary in size and location, but all will weave together elements of experiential learning, open discussion, and professional networking into a dynamic 2-hour session. With this series, the New England Ocean Cluster and its event collaborators, Maine Center Ventures and Startup Maine, are seeking to initiate a dialog that is inclusive, supportive of growth, and fostering of strong relationships.
