Breakthroughs and bugs: Inside Vermont's tech sector
Live call-in discussion: Vermont’s technology sector is robust, and many leaders in the field say it is getting easier to find local talent and convince out-of-state workers to move to Vermont. A new venture capital fund plans to invest in Vermont startups, while places like Hula and the Vermont Startup Collective provide physical and virtual spaces for innovators to meet.
But it's not all smooth sailing. Founders and chief technology officers at some of Vermont’s tech companies say they are facing some of the same challenges as other industries, like the housing shortage and supply chain problems.
This hour, Vermont Edition looks at Vermont’s burgeoning tech industry, some of its recent developments and its challenges.
Our guests are:
