Description

2017 LAUNCHPAD FINALISTS:

  • Good To-Go of Kittery, the first line of all-natural dehydrated meals made for active individuals

  • Jellux of Saco, impact-resistant waterproof advanced marine and outdoor lighting

  • North Spore of Westbrook, gourmet mushrooms and spawn for both retail and commercial use

  • STARC Systems of Brunswick, a modular telescopic wall system that prevents debris and noise from disseminating throughout an occupied building during renovation

  • UniteGPS of Portland, adaptable software tools that coordinate people, places and things



Now in its fifth year, Gorham Savings Bank's LaunchPad is Maine's premier small business competition. There is no cost to attend LaunchPad. The event is about celebrating Maine’s entrepreneurial spirit, so the more, the merrier—but seating is limited.

An independent panel of three judges will select a winner from five finalists who will pitch their business, in front of a live audience, at USM’s Hannaford Hall, on June 6th. That night, one small-but-promising Maine business will win a $50,000 grant from Gorham Savings Bank!

Join us at 4:30pm for a social gathering with food, beverages, and networking. The competition will begin at 5:00pm. Free parking is available in the garage adjacent to Hannaford Hall (Abromson Center).
