Our team provides the resources and access needed for early-stage companies to scale and succeed. We develop and deliver a range of programming that connects companies with the resources they need. We accomplish this in part by leveraging the expertise of GMRI’s team of scientists, economists, supply chain experts, data analysts and other experts — as well as the collective reach of our partners.

We provide direct mentor support, connect founders to Gulf of Maine Research Institute’s subject-matter expertise, and supplement with micro-grant funding to help move founders along the pathway towards growth.
