The Accelerator​

Until its launch in 2015, there was no formal program within Maine that worked with companies that were looking to grow to a national or international scale, especially those that needed outside equity to finance their expansion.

 

Across two cohorts, Lisa Liberatore and Dr. Jason Harkins worked in Bangor, ME with eight companies to provide full-time support, opportunities to learn from experts, and access to over 150 mentors.  

 

Collectively, the companies have raised more than $3 million, added hundreds of new customers and added more than a dozen jobs.
