UMaine Students Featured in BDN Article on Big Gig Pitch Finale

University of Maine students and married couple John and Christine Carney were featured in a Bangor Daily News report about the three married couples who are finalists for the $1,000 grand prize of the Big Gig. The Big Gig is a series of business pitch events for entrepreneurs in Greater Bangor designed to bring together Bangor-Orono area innovators and entrepreneurs and offer networking opportunities. It was started by a partnership between UMaine, Old Town, Orono and Husson University and is supported by Blackstone Accelerates Growth. The Carneys will pitch their business Thick & Thin Designs, a company that specializes in laser-cut acrylic cupcake toppers, during the finale on April 8, at UMaine’s Foster Center for Student Innovation.
