We’re here to help.

Have an idea and don’t know where to start? We can help.

Throughout the semester we hold a number of different events, free to both students and community members, focused around starting and running your business or non-profit. 

Curious about commercialization and want to understand the process? Our Commercialization Training Series is for you!

We also offer training opportunities for Training Opportunities through the University of Maine Innovation Engineering Blue Belt Training for K-12 Schools.

Ready to take the next step? Learn more about the UMaine I-Corps program. I-Corps helps foster innovation and entrepreneurship by providing faculty, staff and students with the tools and guidance needed to identify the market opportunity for their STEM-based research.

For business counseling, consider us your confidential go-to. We’ll help you identify the biggest challenges (we call them ‘death threats’) to making it real and give you confidence you need to move forward if you so choose.

If you need a place to start and run your business, look no further. The Innovation Center has an incubator, just for students, that is free and will give you 24/7 access to the space and resources you need to be successful.
