About the Maine Technology Institute (MTI)
MTI is an industry-led, publicly-funded, nonprofit corporation whose core mission is to diversify and grow Maine’s economy by encouraging, promoting, stimulating and supporting innovation and its transformation into new products, services and companies and, ultimately, the creation of quality jobs for Maine people. Since 1999, it has invested $260 million in over 2,000 projects across Maine. That funding has leveraged over $1 billion in private sector matching funds. In the past fiscal year alone (ending June 30, 2018), MTI deployed $58 million in over 150 projects statewide. According to an independent economic impact analysis, those funds will generate 5,350 jobs over the next 3 years and $1.4 billion in economic impact in Maine.
