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

As a startup tech founder in Vermont, I read this article with great interest having navigated the waters of financing and support in our state for our tech startup — divvi. In our experience we have found the resources and people of Vermont to be open and supportive of startups. But what strikes us missing is better collaboration between private, state and local organizations, and their resources, to maximize the dollars and support available to Vermont startups. By focusing our available mechanisms as packages of support, current startups might not only feel better supported by our environment, we'd attract more, and all would have legitimate chance to succeed.

Secondly, perhaps one of the criteria of any state and local funding or competitions be that the start up remain in Vermont for a designated period of time that allows for significant impact on our economy; and if they choose to leave for greener pastures the monies are repaid.

Vermont has a bright future but the window is closing on the unique opportunity we have to leverage the success and national attention brought to us by Dealer.com, GMP partnership with Tesla, GMC, designbook.com, Notabli, Mamava, Yonder, and ello. Let's not miss it.
