Entrepreneurship is alive and well in Maine. We have resources to help entrepreneurs start a business. The “CreateMaine” event will be followed by a networking reception where you can talk with our panelists and others who can help you succeed.

The CreateMaine panel is hosted by the USM School of Music, and co-presented by the Department of Art, the Department of Environmental Science, the Department of Theatre, and sponsored by the College of Science, Technology, and Health and the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.
