This Evening's Agenda

4:30PM

Welcome reception.

Meet and mingle in USM's beautiful Hannaford Hall in Portland before formal proceedings begin. Sample a few of our past and present competitors' products while enjoying the company of some of Maine's leading entrepreneurs, innovators and creative thinkers.

5:00PM

Live presentations by finalists.

The LaunchPad class of 2017 finalists take to the stage to make their formal, final pitches to our judges: what the company hopes to achieve, how they would use the grant, why they should win... It all factors into the final decision. It's a short window of time to make a big impression. The pressure's on.

7:00PM

Judges deliberation.
LaunchPad Junior winner announced.

The finalists have presented and taken questions from the panel. Now the panel will take a few minutes to decide who the Grand Prize winner will be. While they deliberate, the first LaunchPad Junior winner will be announced.

7:30PM

Winners announced - Grand Prize and Emerging Idea

When the dust clears, one small-but-promising Maine business will emerge victorious and take home $50,000 to grow their business. Another will walk away with tens of thousands of dollars in free business consulting services. Others will leave with the full support of a few hundred new fans they made during the night—including everyone here at Gorham Savings Bank.
