We love this little slice of heaven we call the Midcoast and we’re not bashful about sharing.

Midcoast Magnet is a non-profit organization chock full o’ people dedicated to a vibrant culture and community, entrepreneurship and fostering connections. We value collaboration, innovation, creativity, livability and economic vitality. And you. We value the hell out of you.

So, what does all that actually mean? Really, it’s up to you. 

We offer the times, the places, the funky situations… for you to make the connections that you would like to make. We find the cool stuff, the fun events, the innovative, education, crazy and entertaining – and we share. We collaborate with them, help them prosper and in turn, help our community grow and thrive.

We work to attract as many awesome brains as we can to our lovable area and we make sure they meet others. Connect them… and encourage them to stay. Bring over their toothbrush. Move in. (We get to keep our crappy recliner though.)

Attract. Connect. Retain.

Midcoast Magnet added an event.

Tuesday, March 28
5-7pm
Rock Harbor Pub & Brewery
About M+M Events
Happy Hour...Short and Sweet.

After a winter hiatus... we are back!

If the midcoast has anything...it's a collection of culinary creativity. From farm to table to hip and trendy - we've got it all. In order to kick off the season of socializing, networking and just all around having some lighthearted fun - Midcoast Magnet continues the popular Munchies + Mingling.

Once a month, we will host a happy hour event at a Midcoast bar or restaurant that has been opened by some of our ballsiest creative class . These folks have taken a chance, opened one of the hardest businesses you can imagine and hope to succeed - so why not have a few drinks and good noshies - and show them that we care. (Oh, and we want to have a good time too)

Magnetize Maine Summit

Mar 31, 8:30am

Hilton Garden Inn - Bangor Maine

WE’VE ALL SEEN THE STATISTICS: MAINE IS ONE OF THE OLDEST STATES IN THE U.S., AND WE’RE ONLY GROWING OLDER. The Magnetize Maine Summit hopes to change that. In March 2017, we will unite stakeholders from across the State to brainstorm new, creative ways to attract and retain more young people in Maine. Our goal is to engage young Mainers with partners across the business, academic, and nonprofit sectors. Through facilitated, targeted sessions, attendees will conceive new ways to attract a younger population to Maine. Ideas and data generated from this Summit will be summarized in a comprehensive report and made available to the public. Magnetize Maine is a collaborative effort that seeks your support. Please consider sponsoring this critical event to help move Maine’s workforce, economy, and social vitality forward. Interested sponsors should contact Shelly Reilly, Program Coordinator at the Bangor Chamber of Commerce, at sreilly@bangorregion.com. We also encourage you and your employees to take part in a day of vibrant conversation and idea generation. Don’t miss your chance to be part of the conversation!
