Maine Center for Entrepreneurs Cultivator Program

MCE Cultivator Program. The Maine Center for Entrepreneurs is now taking applications from food, beverage or agriculture companies (including farms) that have a proven value-added product, a scalable business model and are ready to grow and scale up.  Participants are led by a full-time program manager with 20+ years of food industry experience who works directly with member companies to understand your business and closely monitor your needs and progress. This program includes an initial business assessment, action plan, coaching and mentoring, access to consultant support, and industry-focused workshops and events, culminating with a showcase event to an audience of potential investors, business leaders and journalists at the end of the program. This is a 12-month program with $2,500 cost.
