Why Maine?
NEW Video & Web Page

The "Why Maine?" project is focused on promoting Maine as a great location for life sciences. We think it beautifully conveys our message that our state is the most enriching community to live and work for bioscience professionals. In addition to the video, we've also added a few new pages to our website to host the video, give information, and provide resources for startups, companies, and employees.

This project was made possible thanks to funding and collaboration with FocusMaine
