Investors, technology experts and economic development organizations continue Tech @ series
Middlebury, Vt. (November 4, 2013) – Investors, tech experts and entrepreneurs will return to Middlebury on November 14 for one of the state’s hottest entrepreneurial networking events.
Tech @ Middlebury is part of an event series intended to foster the entrepreneurial genius that defines the state. At the event, attendees can get information on how to start or grow their business, make connections with investors and even find summer interns.
At the event, several private and non-profit investment and economic development organizations from within Vermont will come to engage, share and learn from local entrepreneurs, business owners and investors.
“We’re excited to have the Tech @ series returning to Middlebury,” said Addison County Economic Development Corporation (ACEDC) Executive Director Robin Scheu. “Not only was this event very popular last time around, but we saw entrepreneurs still benefiting from attendance months later. If you are an entrepreneur in the area, the Tech @ Middlebury event is a must!”
Organizers for this Tech @ series include the ACEDC, Middlebury College, Fresh Tracks Capital, LP, the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development, North Country Angels, Vermont Center for Emerging Technologies (VCET) and the Vermont Technology Council. Following the event in Middlebury, the next Tech @event is being planned for Southern Vermont in February.
The event continues the statewide networking series that started in Newport, Vt. in 2011.
“Two years ago our core partners started the Tech @ series to connect local entrepreneurs with investors, potential new team members, and local business leaders,” said VCET Vice President Andrew Stickney. “The response from Middlebury has been exceptional, and we are excited to meet and connect even more people at this event!”
Tech @ Middlebury will go from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. November 14 at 51 Main at the Bridge in Downtown Middlebury, Vermont.
