Why do you enjoy being a business in Maine?
Maine is a great place for a growing business because there is a strong sense of community support. Industry organizations, fellow founders, and investors who live and work in Maine take pride in supporting other businesses in our state. HighByte is financially backed by strategic angels and institutional venture partners in Maine, including Maine Angels, CEI Ventures, Maine Venture Fund, and Maine Technology Institute. The state of Maine has fostered a very positive environment for startups to grow thanks in large part to the host of unique programs offered by the Finance Authority of Maine (FAME) and the swell of technical talent that is both native and new to the state.
