While it isn't the capital, Portland is the state's largest city, the economic hub, and home to a thriving startup community. The city's proximity to universities gives businesses access to high-quality, tech-savvy talent. It serves as the first stop for many young entrepreneurs looking to start their ventures out of school.
The city's reputation as a tech community has only grown stronger as Portland was selected in January 2020 as the location of a new research institute, led by Northeastern University, focused on artificial intelligence and machine learning. The Org named the following ten companies as the most exciting tech startups brewing in Maine:
- Farmhand Automation
- Novo Biosciences
