MTI Funding Options 

This is a free workshop sponsored by Think Tank Biddeford, Maine SBDC, Women’s Business Center at CEI, and SCORE Portland. Pre-registration is required. 

No more deadlines, no silos, and no rigid program boundaries. The Maine Technology Institute (MTI) has simplified its funding approach into a process tailored to applicant needs, thereby maximizing its economic impact in the state. Discover the flexibility of MTI’s new funding approach as Amy Leshure, Investment Officer at MTI, explains the process. 

MTI offers grants, loans, equity investments, and services to support Maine’s innovation economy. We support new ideas, products, or methods with the potential to grow and diversify Maine’s economy and increase the number of quality jobs throughout the state through direct support of innovators and through support of programs and infrastructure that encourage innovation. Since 1999, MTI has invested $260 million in over 2,000 projects across Maine. That funding has leveraged over $1 billion in private sector matching funds. In the past fiscal year alone, MTI deployed $58 million in over 150 projects statewide.
