Re: “Ello, Goodbye? Some Startups Leave Vermont for More Populated Pastures

My personal experience in running a tech startup is that Vermont is a great place to be located! Some ideas, for instance Blu-Bin, with it's in-person retail business model that is probably not easy to prove in Vermont, need to move to demonstrate success. Other businesses may not find interested investors amongst the small pool of options in Vermont, and since investors like to be geographically close to their investments, that's another reason to move.

However, I want to dispel the persistent myth that Vermont is not a good place to grow a tech startup. Even in Montpelier I never lacked for creative, energetic employees. I'm convinced Vermont workers are some of the most skilled, dedicated, and loyal staff that can be found anywhere. Our Internet service was never a problem, I had no trouble traveling the world to market my enterprise health science product, and we all know that Vermont has a business community that supports it's own.

Now if we could just get the State government to do more to support tech startups...
