Presenting Central Maine to UK Firms

In June of 2014 the KRDA executive director met with nine British firms from Birmingham to London.   These firms included information communications technology (ICT) firms (with a focus on gaming); life sciences firms, medical device firms and aerospace/defense firms.   Again the same process was used – networking aggressively and meeting with the C-suite/principals of each of these firms at their operations.  Each of these firms are planning their first phased expansion into the north east of the US.  The intent is to maintain an on-going dialog until they are ready to materialize their investment.   The highlight of the this UK experience was getting “hung, drawn and quartered.”
