Public invited to help build our business ecosystem
MIDDLEBURY — Community Barn Ventures will host the Vermont Business Ecosystem Meetup in Middlebury this Wednesday evening.
People who are entrepreneurs, small business owners in Addison County or part of the entrepreneurial network are invited to come and share their thoughts and suggestions for amplifying the current business ecosystem. How can we build a more productive environment for entrepreneurs? What are the barriers or challenges? What’s missing from the pool of resources?
The event will take place on April 3, 5:30-8 p.m. at 44 Main St. in downtown Middlebury.
Hosts Stacey Rainey and Mary Cullinane of Community Barn Ventures will lead a conversation with Sarah Kearns (Vermont Small Business Development Center), Fred Kenney (Addison County Economic Development Corp.) and Sas Stewart (Stonecutter Spirits) around ecosystem building, as it relates directly to economic development.
Complimentary adult beverages and light appetizers will be served up with productive, thought-provoking conversation.
Organizers are asking that participants RSVP to this free event. Register via Eventbrite online at tinyurl.com/y4mjz837.
