Pierce Atwood Platinum Sponsor of 2019 Startup Maine

Now in its sixth year, Startup Maine’s annual conference was created as part of the wave of talented leaders and entrepreneurs using innovation and technology to create and pursue new business opportunities. Startup Maine seeks to harness this “emergent energy” by creating an event that encourages “an exchange of ideas, knowledge, and action.”

As part of its commitment to supporting startups, entrepreneurs, and emerging businesses through its Catalyst program, Pierce Atwood is pleased to once again be a platinum sponsor of this event, and pleased to present this panel of experienced entrepreneurs and legal counsel:

“Been There, Done That”: Avoid Mistakes by Listening to Fellow Entrepreneurs
Setting the right groundwork at the outset is key for any business to succeed. In this panel, attendees will hear from Dr. Samir Haydar, CEO and co-founder of navigatER, a mobile health solution, and Jeremy Lombardo, president of CyberNorth, an enterprise IT infrastructure provider founded in Portland, Maine. They’ll talk about their early days, their challenges, obstacles, and successes.

They will be joined by Pierce Atwood attorneys Robert Abrahamsen (patent), Jonathan Gelchinsky (copyright and trademark), Olga Goldberg (tax), and Andrea Suter (corporate), to round out the conversation with practical legal considerations all entrepreneurs should know as they launch their new business.

In addition, Pierce Atwood invites conference guests to attend Friday’s free lunch program, “Money, Mentors, and Jobs.” Sidle up to the free taco bar and meet entrepreneurs from some of Maine’s largest tech companies and startups, and learn about available financial resources, networking opportunities, mentoring programs, and more.
