A thriving startup community deserves a thriving vehicle to share its stories.

Maine Startups Insider strives each week to fill that role. What I began as a Friday morning email to aggregate a week's worth of interesting links has evolved into its own website where I'm breaking major news (Putney's acquisitionDechra's layoffs and Don Gooding's resignation from MCED) and creating original content and a more robust weekly newsletter that includes not only links, but a startup job board and local events calendar.

It all requires many more hours of work a week than I first envisioned. If you find value in the news I'm sharing and the stories I'm telling, please consider a small monthly donation. Your pledges will help make Maine Startups Insider self-sustaining.

And I'm not done. There are additional features I want to introduce that would improve the experience for readers and provide additional resources to Maine's startup community. These features will be unlocked by hitting the funding goals.

All of the above, but at this point I think you're giving because you support what I'm doing and not what rewards I'm offering.

If you're giving this much, it's not for the rewards. You'll have my eternal thanks.
Goals
$401 of $600 per month
For a long time, I've wanted to create an online jobs board for Maine's startup community. It would offer a place for local founders and CEOs to find local talent, and a place for the talent to see the types of opportunities available among the state's startups. Maine Startups Insider has a large readership from out of state, and it's clear many of those out-of-state readers have ties to Maine and would consider returning for the right opportunity. If I reach $600 a month, I'll build out the Maine Startups Job Board.
