MTI offers grants, loans, equity investments, and services to businesses, organizations, and individuals to support Maine’s innovation economy. MTI defines innovators as individuals or groups who introduce ideas that create something new or improve an existing product, service, or process. We support new ideas, devices, 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.
MTI has new funding programs and processes. Clients may apply for funds at any time and we no longer have fixed programs with specific deadlines. While there are exceptions, you can read about our general guidelines for qualifying for MTI funding. Our goal is to provide more tailored support, more customer-centric service, and to maximize MTI’s impact in Maine.
