Sharing the best of Maine’s future

Are you a small business owner going above and beyond? Have you made mistakes in business and learned from them? Do you have a great story to tell? If so, we want to hear from you.

Jake will regularly choose an individual or business to feature. He will put his mad interviewing skills to work and produce a video that will be featured on our blog and social media pages, and right here on this page. So, if you are a great, young business person, or know someone that is, fill out the interview request form and the Young & Free Maine team will contact you!
