good afternoon, my name is Ezra from Orono, ME and I created an activity resource site called DSPortal.site to provide a much easier way of finding activities and private events in your community. Enjoy and stay safe!
Thank you Greenlight Maine! MaineWorks was honored to pitch in this entrepreneurial contest! This is an incredible way to showcase the home grown businesses in this State that are all successful and thriving! It was an honor to be at Thomas College in Waterville with Nat Thompson, Con Fullam, Julene Gervais and all of the judges. Thank you for this great opportunity!!
I am happy the new season started airing today.
Our full 6-episode digital docu-series "Puckland" (making the Maine Mariners hockey team) is now streaming and bingeable at NBCSports.com! Made 100% in Maine, and including some darn good local music, too! Yep, you CAN get there from here.... https://www.nbcsports.com/video/nhl-puckland-episode-1-introducing-maine-mariners #Puckland #MaineMariners #TerrenceWallin #ECHL #NBCSports #ShamrockSports #GetThereFromHere
Have the finals for season 4 started?
Looking forward to Season 4
I like your new set, but the long shot looks very awkward having the judges and guests so far apart... you need to bring them all closer together
Will the Season 4 contestants be announced before midnight today. It's 11:30 p.m. now?
Have the contestants for the next competition been selected yet?
Hi! Please let me introduce myself, my name is Lee McAleney and I would like to share my business idea with you. First off, on a personal level, it has always given me pleasure to repurpose things into more useful functionality. An example of this is that I have never enjoyed making my bed each morning yet, I love a beautifully decorated and organized bedroom. I have found that unless the bed is made, all of the other de core falls short of interesting. As a result, I have created an innovative bed linen company called "Candlelight Bed Linens. Fresh living in a snap!" I have a dream of being able to keep the bedding organized with a simple snap and pleat system that will save time each day. With this idea, I am very interested in being a part of greenlight MAINE's up coming season! Wouldn't it be wonderful to get up each morning and just snap your bedding together and it is instantly made? As I have been working with the Small Business Administration of Maine, I have decided that my target market will be in the nursing home industry. I know that my bedding would help the elderly population to stay warm and feel safe while snuggled in their beds. Plus, my linens will help the quality of the nursing home environment by keeping each room looking neat and fresh. The staff would gain valuable time to focus their attention on more important tasks as they will no longer need to be constantly readjusting the sheets from falling off of the residents! Candlelight Linens will be an asset to all by saving time and energy each morning. Instead of struggling with the daunting task of making your bed each day, just snap your sheets into place. Gain valuable, precious minutes with your family, go for a jog, meet a friend for coffee, or just relax and read the morning news! I hope you enjoy the video, watch carefully for the play on words! If you want to know more about Candlelight Bed Linens; fresh living in a snap. Please contact me at: [email protected] or: 207-233-4726 Thank you for your interest. Lee McAleney
Congratulations CourseStorm! You got the greenlight!
