Need mentoring, funding, or business connections? 
Vermont Venture Network (VVN) is the place to find your one-stop calendar for all events of interest to all participants in the Vermont entrepreneurial ecosystem.

There are so many groups supporting Vermont's entrepreneurial community. It's hard to know where to start! 

Our comprehensive calendar features educational and inspirational events that enhance the interaction and exchange of ideas within Vermont’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.

For January 1989 to January 2015, VVN held a monthly educational and networking forum featuring speakers from Vermont's business community. Attendees included entrepreneurs, management-for-hire, employment candidates, investors, and those who assist start-ups and established entrepreneurial businesses, such as government agencies and service providers. Nothing like VVN existed in 1989, but now there are a myriad of gatherings, meetups, etc.  Accordingly, VVN meetings are currently on hiatus. VVN is pursuing other ways to facilitate the local ecosystem and this comprehensive calendar is the initial result of that effort.

Please submit relevant events to Linda Dissinger at Merritt & Merritt.

Some of the many sponsors and partners supporting VVN over the years:

"VVN is the premier networking event for entrepreneurial businesses in northern Vermont. FreshTracks Capital has been a longtime sponsor of the Vermont Venture Network due to the compelling and informative series of speakers, as well as the valuable business connections that my partners and I have established through the network. VVN is a vital resource for business owners and job seekers, and an integral piece of the entrepreneurial economy of Vermont."
