Technology Boards

Nearly 100 experienced business and technology experts volunteer their time to serve on MTI’s seven technology boards. Technology Board members evaluate MTI seed grant proposals and development award applications, make funding recommendations, and contribute advice to the MTI Board of Directors in matters of policy based on their in-depth knowledge of their industries’ technologies and needs in Maine.

Service on the MTI Technology Boards is purely voluntary, and is “open to private sector representatives, scientists and others determined appropriately representatives of the targeted technology sectors” (Sec. AAA-3. 5MRSA c.407). Anyone interested in serving on a Technology Board is encouraged to contact the Chair of the Technology Board, or the president of MTI, and their interest will be given due consideration by the Technology Board, and the MTI Board of Directors. All technology board members sign a Confidentiality Form¬†and Conflict of Interest Form to ensure that applicant and MTI-funded company information is held in the strictest confidence. See the lists below for technology board members.
