Jonathan Sprague, our Operations Manager seen below educating the public about the ACE Auto Grade at the MTI Techwalk in Portland. The audience was easily engaged by his enthusiasm and knowledge of the product. This event turned out to be well worth the effort & muscle it took to get the machine into this old historic building in Portland (and their notoriously un-obliging architecture).

As an MTI awardee Advanced Concepts & Engineering LLC was invited to participate and exhibit in their annual TechWalk on Wednesday June 21st at Westin Harborview Hotel in Portland Maine.  This is a way for MTI to allow entrepreneurs, inventors, developers & companies in their portfolio to showcase their talent.  And free press coverage, no matter how large or small, never hurts our bottom line either.  We were able to pick up several leads and connections that fall right in line with what ACE is trying to accomplish and this may very well be attributed to the Techwalk being held in concert with Maine Startup & Create Week (MSCW) which specifically focuses on the Maine start up community.  At the very least we were engaging an audience of like minded individuals and getting our name out and circulated at the same time.
