What is Innovate for Maine?

The Innovate for Maine Fellows Program connects the most passionate and curious Maine college students with Maine’s most exciting growing companies.

This paid summer fellowship helps students develop innovation skills and hone them through work with Maine companies. Student fellows learn about the dynamic entrepreneurial and innovative companies operating in the state, and Maine companies can plug directly into a structured program that gives them effortless access to a broad network of student talent. 

Emphasizing innovation and entrepreneurship, Innovate for Maine prepares student fellows to collaborate with companies on innovation projects that accelerate company growth and give students a paid, meaningful, hands-on internship experience.

The goal is to grow Maine companies and a talent pool who can see a future in Maine and are invested in creating it.
