Young Entrepreneurs Answer, “Why Vermont?”

Retaining talented people and recruiting them to Vermont is one significant piece of the workforce challenge in our state. Why do young professionals come here? What makes them stay? Can a young entrepreneur grow in Vermont? We ask Ted Adler of Union Street Media and Marguerite Dibble of GameTheory to talk about their early success and entrepreneurial growth story in Vermont. Attend the annual U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy Business Breakfast to hear how this inspiring sector of our workforce can shape Vermont’s future.

Vermont’s Workforce Supply Gap – Can we fill it?
Diamond Ballroom, $45
Join the Vermont Futures Project to help solve the workforce supply gap. How do we find 11,000 new people to enter the labor market? What strategies should we use? How do we attract new Vermonters to our state? Vermont’s population and workforce have grown too slowly to meet demand, and the future of our economy depends on filling this gap.
