News from our Advisory Board member, Tom Rainey! 
As the Executive Director of the Maine Center for Entrepreneurs and a seasoned business and economic development strategist, Tom Rainey recently spearheaded the highly successful Maine Entrepreneurs Summit in Portland. 
This annual flagship event attracted 280 attendees and served as the platform to unveil their ten-year economic development and five-year science and technology plans.

At the event, they welcomed John Harthorne, Founder and Managing Director of Two Lanterns Venture Partners and renowned entrepreneur, who joined them at the summit. John's remarkable expertise, particularly as the visionary behind MassChallenge, the largest and most successful accelerator supported by Massachusetts Institute of Technology, added unique value to the event.

Additionally, they had the opportunity to witness the culmination of the regular pitch competition, which showcased new talents and innovation within the American startup ecosystem.
