Survey for entrepreneurs will help develop Dirigo Labs innovation hub

The Central Maine Growth Council is offering a survey for entrepreneurs and startups that will help evaluate activity, needs and goals of the sector across Maine as the council develops the Dirigo Labs innovation hub in Waterville.

The survey will collect feedback regarding topics that include startup needs, business development, educational training and investment objectives. The goal is to evaluate how CMGC and area institutions can more effectively engage investors, funders and partners to support Maine-based entrepreneurs.

“Entrepreneurs are pioneering approaches that drive our local economies, catalyze creativity, and support durable innovation ecosystems,” said Garvan Donegan, CMGC director of planning, innovation and economic development. “As the Growth Council embarks on the public opening of Dirigo Labs, we’re thrilled to launch the Maine Startup Census to cull data points and content that will help inform Dirigo Labs about the needs of entrepreneurs and Maine-based startups.” Read more
