"Greenlight Maine" is the vision of Portland Media Group, a custom content and production company founded by Brian Corcoran, CEO of Shamrock Sports & Entertainment; Nat Thompson, former producer/owner of WCSH-6; and Con Fullam, an executive TV producer and music composer. "There are no losers in 'Greenlight Maine,'" Corcoran says. "In our four seasons, 300-plus companies have entered and 104 prospective companies have been vying for the coveted prize purse. In addition, these startups have received priceless mentoring from some of the most admired corporate and community leaders in our great state."
