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.
