MRRA Business Assistance Workshop a Big Hit
We had a great turnout this morning at the Business Assistance Workshop. Several Brunswick Landing businesses and local companies attended the workshop held in the Maine Technology Institute/Building 27 Community Room.
Ten local and state business assistance agencies gave short informational presentations on their offerings, which are available for free for companies in need of help. Among the topics included where to go for help with finance, manufacturing plant layout, employee training programs, marketing, workforce development, certification, tax credits, planning, and grants and contracts. MRRA’s Kristine Schuman moderated the workshop.
Thanks to the following organizations for attending and doing a great job informing us about their programs:
Maine Technology Institute, Maine Manufacturing Extension Partnership, Southern Maine Community College, Coastal Counties Workforce, Inc., Coastal Enterprises Inc., Small Business Administration, Libra Future Fund, Maine Procurement Technical Assistance Center, Maine Department of Economic and Community Development and the Maine Small Business Development Center.
We hope to have another one of these events in 2015. Stay tuned.
