Maine entrepreneurs find some angels for the details

GORHAM - Doug and Lyndsay Sanborn are already selling their all-natural laundry detergents to 28 retailers throughout the country, but they still haven't worked out all the kinks of their new business.

The Casco couple are hoping students from the University of Southern Maine's College of Science, Technology and Health can help.

The Sanborns' startup, Ruby Moon, is one of four chosen to participate in Campus Ventures, a new program created in collaboration with the Maine Center for Enterprise Development in Portland.

The center, a nonprofit business incubator, assists the entrepreneurs with the financial and marketing aspects of their companies, while the students help with technical processes, including manufacturing and quality control.

The 10 student interns in the program are paid $9.25 an hour and work on the projects for between 15 and 20 hours per week for about 10 months, said Michael Wing, director of external programs at USM.
