The Innovation Issue 

Every so often, Seven Days produces special issues — i.e. the Animal Issue, the Money Issue, the Hunting Issue, etc. This week's theme is "The Innovation Issue." It's in conjunction with the Vermont 3.0 Innovation Jam that we're sponsoring on Monday at the Sheraton. 

This week you can read about local defense contractors, an iPhone game designer who lives in Huntington, a family-owned Winooski company that makes life-saving sensors and new robotic milking machines. Here's a complete list of stories.

This issue also gave Eva Sollberger an excuse to visit the Emergent Media Center at the Champlain Mill in Winooski, which she profiles in this week's episode of "Stuck in Vermont."

Shameless plug: If you're looking for a job, or want to start a business, or want to network with local techies, check out the Innovation Jam on Monday. There are 60+ exhibitors, workshops offering business start-up help and a CEO-founder speaker series featuring execs from six local companies. Plus, it's free. Here's the schedule.

    Social Sentinel, a Burlington-based company that identifies threatening content on social media, was among the winners of the 2018 Tech Jam awards, presented last Friday at the 12th Vermont Tech Jam. The prizes, given annually by the Vermont Technology Alliance, BTV Ignite and Seven Days, recognize leaders in the state's tech ecosystem. The awards ceremony was the culmination of a busy day at the free career and tech expo organized by Seven Days and presented by Vermont Works. Representatives from more than 50 companies and colleges talked with hundreds of attendees who walked the expo floor. Jeff Couture, executive director of the Vermont Technology Alliance, said he talked with job seekers from across Vermont and outside the state at the event, "including someone, suitcase in hand, who visited from North Carolina."
