Lillie Lavado, Founder

Lillie founded HardScrabble Solutions in Downtown Presque Isle, Maine in May 2017 with a goal to provide incubation resources to small business startups predominantly run by women. Under Lillie’s leadership, HardScrabble strives to accommodate everyone by ensuring flexibility and encouragement. 

Lillie also leads the UX & Web Design Team at HardScrabble Solutions. This team offers social media & digital marketing, website design and development, and more to local busineses and is a registered federal contractor.

One of the greatest dilemmas facing the community that Lillie is tackling is the lack of quality computer science education opportunists. She has created and teaches KidzCode and KidzCode Robotics and a variety of classes for children and adults. Lillie regularly offers workshops throughout the region.
