Celebrate entrepreneurship, cultivate creativity, and drive high-impact innovation at Maine Startup & Create Week, June 19-23, 2017.
At Maine College of Art, the art of creative entrepreneurship is one of our core values. We provide each student the necessary professional skills to transform aspirations and values into a creative practice.
Maine Startup & Create Week brings a week of learning, interviews with leaders, hands-on workshops, and social events all focused on creative entrepreneurship and community leadership.
“The speakers, including two startup founders with Maine ties, were picked to help encourage Maine residents who want to develop high-growth, high-impact companies to flourish in a state that is geared toward more traditional small-business models, said event founder Jess Knox, a Portland-based business consultant. Mainers excel at launching small businesses, and hard work, but often lack the opportunity to hear from people ‘who have big aspirations to grow a world-class company,’ Knox said.” — Penelope Overton, Portland Press Herald
