Penobscot Times mentions UpStart Center in article on gift box business
The Penobscot Times mentioned the UpStart Center for Entrepreneurship in Orono, a University of Maine-run incubator program with a diverse mix of companies, in an article about an expansion of Box of Maine. The company offers customizable gift boxes filled with Maine items, from blueberry soap to whoopie pies and red hot dogs. Box of Maine operates mostly online, but will open a new Old Town location on Nov. 1, and plans to hire two more full-time employees in addition to their current one before the holiday season, The Penobscot Times reported. Daniel Finnemore founded the business in 2017 at his home in Old Town, then joined the UpStart Center to help educate himself more on running and growing the business, the article states.
