LEWISTON — A-C-E, Androscoggin County Entrepreneurs, welcomes Heather Blease, CEO of Savilinx, as guest speaker for the April meeting.

It will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 8, at Davinci’s Eatery in Lewiston. Blease is the first woman entrepreneur to address the group and she brings an impressive background and compelling story to share.

Most recently, Blease started a call center company called SaviLinx on Brunswick Landing. She was also the founder and CEO of Envisionet in 1995, a company that grew from startup to more than 2,500 employees and was recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in the Maine technology economy.

She has garnered many awards for her achievements, including Economic Developer of the Year, Kennebec Valley Chamber of Commerce President’s Award and the Distinguished Engineering Award from UMaine College of Engineering.

The A-C-E group meets the second Tuesday of each month and brings entrepreneurs, investors, inventors, business and community leaders together to foster relationships in support of economic development in the Lewiston-Auburn area, central Maine region and across the state. There is no charge to attend the meetings.
