Midcoast Marketing Mini-Grant Pitch Awarded

His business, Jacobson Glass Studio, is located in Montville and has been in operation for about three years.
David has positioned his studio very successfully as a destination and himself as a high-end glass maker. He has recently renovated and upgraded his home studio and re-branded. David’s request in his Pitch was for two signs for his business, a studio sign, and a road sign. The benefit to his business is very clear: to continue to reinforce his upscale, sophisticated brand.
David says it best: “My goal is to create an atmosphere of sophistication and professionalism that will prepare my buyers for my quality of work and corresponding prices.”
New Ventures Maine (NVME)’s marketing mini-grant program aims to strengthen access to markets for micro-businesses by supporting the development of marketing tools, materials, and activities.
