Powered By VSECU to provide capital for businesses looking to grow in Vermont
A thriving economy requires matching sustainable and quality jobs with a healthy, robust, working-age population. When business leaders talk about their greatest business challenges, they often cite access to workforce as the top issue. Vermont has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the nation, but many skilled positions remain unfilled for extended periods of time.
Vermont Works is an alternative investment firm focusing on delivering competitive financial returns and positive social impact in the state of Vermont. Vermont Works is building a social impact fund to invest in growth stage companies that are creating high-quality jobs to retain and attract more working-age Vermonters.
We are Powering Vermont Works because…
