Vermont Works is excited to announce the 2nd Annual Vermont Investors Summit, curated to promote greater visibility to our state's business and innovation ecosystems. As the keystone event of Innovation Week, powered by BTV Ignite, the Summit is a unique opportunity for those looking to attract early & growth stage investment with socially-minded investors from Vermont and beyond.
With opening remarks from The Honorable Governor of the State of Vermont, Phil Scott, the Summit includes investor speed dating, an expo of Vermont businesses, a speaker series and a networking reception hosted at the Lake Champlain Community Sailing Center.
This year, we will be taking over all three floors of the Sailing Center including the upper deck. The evening will begin on the ground floor with opening remarks and speaker series; guests will be invited to flow through the Vermont Expo on the second floor and enjoy food/beverages and investor speed dating on the upper deck.
A main focus of the Summit will be the new dedicated places & spaces for innovators and entrepreneurs under development that aim to make Vermont a viable place to live, work and play. We'll hear from the visionary developers leading this transformation, which will introduce world-class startup hotdesking, office, co-working and co-living spaces. These efforts will amplify our state's wide range of incubation and acceleration programs, supporting a growing startup/scaleup community.
