PORTLAND, ME – July 30, 2013 – Casco Bay Technology Hub (CBTH) and Blackstone Accelerates Growth announce that this month’s PubHub is taking over Casco Bay Lines’ Bay Mist vessel for a private, two-hour, sunset cruise on Casco Bay. PubHub is a monthly series of networking events to help Maine’s tech community unite to share ideas, meet new people, and grow together.
PubHub is the first Tuesday of each month at the Business Innovation Center within CBTH, a tech community space that provides collaboration, partnerships, and networking opportunities. With the exception of special events like this month’s Casco Bay cruise, PubHub features a speaker with real-world business expertise to share insight on technology and how it relates to business development, growth, and entrepreneurship. Baxter Brewing generously provides beer it has craft-brewed in Lewiston, ME.
Premium sponsor for the August PubHub is Blackstone Accelerates Growth, a $3 million, three-year initiative that will help the Maine entrepreneurs leading start-ups and existing companies get the coaching and training that they need to accelerate the growth of their company and create more good jobs across the state.
