Key comment from Heather Blease, president and CEO: “The quality of life in Maine is stellar and I believe we are still able to attract top talent to our company, buy clomid reviews because it’s such a great place to live. The aging workforce in Maine works to our benefit, as our jobs are a great fit for our mature workforce.

“As a startup, I feel that the state could do more to help fund early stage companies. Funding sources are fractured and tend to be pigeon-holed by specific industry segments. It is difficult to navigate through various programs to find the job-creation incentives or potential funding sources that are essential for early stage companies.”
