UMaine’s Big Gig Program Focus of Maine Edge Article

Big Gig, a program designed to bring together innovators and entrepreneurs in the Orono-Bangor area and offer networking opportunities, was featured in an article in The Maine Edge. The program was started by a partnership between the University of Maine, the towns of Old Town and Orono, and Husson University. The Big Gig includes a series of live pitching events with a chance to win prize money. The first event takes place at Verve in Orono on Oct. 22. Jesse Moriarity, coordinator of UMaine’s Foster Center for Student Innovation, said the Big Gig was initially just about creating networking events, but the “pitch-off” was added as a fun way to get everyone involved in the event.
