5/29/12 - MTI launches Generation Innovation, a monthly showcase of Maine's exciting technology businesses and entrepreneurs
Maine Technology Institute (MTI) is showcasing the exciting stories of Maine entrepreneurs and their technology-based businesses through a new community-access television show, “Generation Innovation.” With a new edition each month, Generation Innovation gives viewers across the state, and beyond through on-line distribution, the opportunity to step inside some of Maine’s exciting technology-based businesses and to get to know their products, services and markets in Maine, throughout the US and around the world. Through Generation Innovation, viewers will meet the entrepreneurs who are developing businesses, building Maine’s economy and growing Maine jobs.
May’s show features Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences in East Boothbay, Kennebec River Bioscience in Richmond and Fluid Imaging Technologies in Yarmouth. The show looks at how one of Maine’s internationally recognized marine science labs is working together with two of Maine’s leading edge technology companies to develop products and services that meet challenges around the world. All three are growing, adding employees and contributing to their communities in significant ways.
June’s Generation Innovation features CashStar and Kepware, both Portland-based Information Technology companies that are on the cutting-edge of their fields reaching markets around the world, and adding jobs to Maine’s workforce. Kepware is committed to growing Maine’s workforce and sponsors three full engineering scholarships at the University of Maine every year.
In July, Generation Innovation looks toward the ocean through three businesses. Ocean Renewable Power Co, in Portland and Eastport which is developing tidal energy, Ocean Approved, in Portland, which farms sea vegetables in Casco Bay and Blue Hill Salt Pond, and Ocean Farm Technologies, in Searsmont, which has developed and sells the Aquapod, an aquaculture cultivation system for exposed open ocean conditions worldwide.
The show is produced at Portland’s CTN5 and can be seen in the CTN viewing area on Mondays at 7PM, Tuesdays at 1AM, Wednesdays at 6AM and Fridays at 1PM throughout the month or on the CTN website at ctn5.org. Please check with your community access TV station for local listings. All Community Access Television stations across Maine are invited to upload the show through PegMedia.
Maine Technology Institute (MTI) is a publicly-funded, industry-led, non-profit corporation that offers funding in the form of competitive grants, loans and equity investment to help grow technology-intensive companies and generate high-quality jobs across Maine.
