AUBURN, Maine– Today, Matt Leonard, CEO of Military Talent Source, LLC, announced details of the upcoming event, Maine Small Business Exchange being held at the Hilton Garden Inn Auburn Riverwatch, 14 Great Falls Plaza, Auburn, ME, February 16 & 17, 2018.
The Maine Small Business Exchange is a first of its kind event that looks to match separating entrepreneurial veterans with small business owners looking to sell or transfer out of their successful small business. Qualified veterans have multiple funding resources available to them to assist in acquiring businesses.
Maine has an overall aging demographic and consequently many small business owners are and will continue to look to sell or transfer their successful businesses in the near future. This is the perfect opportunity for small business owners to connect with veterans ready to transition.
“I spend a great deal of time traveling around the country talking with veterans separating from service. Many of them want to either start or buy a business. Combine that with the demographics of Maine and importance of small business in Maine, that we frequently hear about, and you can quickly see how an event such as this could be a tremendous opportunity for all involved.” – Matt Leonard
The event will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn Auburn Riverwatch on February 16th and 17th with the bulk of the event being on Saturday the 17th.
“Friday, February 16th we are holding a welcome social for those individuals traveling from out of state. The main event will take place Saturday, February 17th and will feature numerous guest speakers on various business topics as well as our keynote speaker, Chris Tyll, prominent business owner and former Navy Seal” said Leonard.
The event is open to the public and non-veterans are welcome.
