A place your business can call home in Franklin County, Maine

Entrepreneurship

In Franklin County, we recognize the significance that our entrepreneurs have on the local economy and beyond.

We find that entrepreneurs are here because they want to live here. Not all entrepreneurs want to be in Portland, Bangor or Boston. They want to be where they have personal connections. People think that to be an entrepreneur, you have to be close to the city for the market and workforce. That’s not necessarily true.

Greater Franklin Development Council partnered with the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce and the Women’s Business Center at CEI to develop the Entrepreneurs Connect event to cheer on entrepreneurs to...Get inspired to think big, be bold and take risks. Challenge yourself to grow your business and take it to the next level. This event is held bi-annually in the spring and fall.
