PORTLAND, Maine – Eaton Peabody was one of several proud sponsors of Maine Startup and Create Week in Portland, Maine. For 8 days, Portland was filled with innovators, entrepreneurs, and creative professionals who attended over 30 events showcasing Maine’s growing startup ecosystem. People came in from all over Maine and the United States to participate in the week’s events.
At the Tech Cocktail Mixer & Startup Showcase held on Thursday evening, June 19, at Portland’s historic Masonic Temple, Counsel Ed Feibel represented Eaton Peabody to present the Maine’s Hottest Showcasing Startup – Reader’s Choice Award to Khris Lalemand, president of MiFilter. MiFilter scours the Web to find the best content and then recommends which articles its customers should e-mail to which clients based on the industry they are in and the keywords with which the customers tag them. The Tech Cocktail staff selected MiFilter to receive The Reader’s Choice Award, a $500 cash award from Eaton Peabody that was much appreciated by the growing startup.
Ed commented that, “As with all of the events I attended during Maine Startup and Create Week, Tech Cocktail was both informative and exciting. Meeting the 10 Maine-based entrepreneurs featured at the event reinforced for me the vibrancy and diversity of Maine’s start-up community. I was very pleased to represent the firm to present the $500 check to Khris Lalemand, President and founder of MiFilter.”
