UMaine Business Challenge

Our Sponsors and Supporters

In letter from the founders, we mention that our goal is to help facilitate the growth of the State of Maine from number 50 to number 35 on Forbes list of “Best States to do Business” .

The UBC intends to do this by encouraging our individual participants and by working with Maine talent to create a culture and atmosphere that will breed success.  Part of our mission was to find supporters for these young entrepreneurs and as we progress to the first annual UBC we are humbled by the level of generosity we’ve seen. Many have volunteered their expertise and services to the winners and participants of the challenge and we cannot begin to thank these individuals and companies enough.

The group spans the business functions of: Accountants, Lawyers, Marketers, Radio Show Hosts, Product Developers, and General Consultants.  Over $6000.00 of advice and services have been pledge by this group, a statement that solidifies their commitment to the growth of the State.  It is with this generosity that we are honored to present these supporters and encourage anyone looking for assistance in their area of expertise to reach out to them.
