A new co-working space is opening in downtown Burlington this summer, city and state leaders announced Monday morning.
The incubator is conceived as a headquarters for high-tech startup companies, a workspace for other professionals and a technology and business support center for all. Co-working is a model for sharing space and fostering collaboration among creative professionals.
“It’s basically designed for the startup, the student, the researcher, the remote working professional,” said David Bradbury, president of the Vermont Center for Emerging Technologies. The nonprofit connects entrepreneurs with the mentorship, venture expertise and financial resources they need to grow businesses in Vermont.
VCET now operates two incubator and co-working spaces at UVM and Middlebury. Soon it also will manage the new VCET @ BTV, to be housed on the second floor of a FairPoint Communications facility at 266 Main St. in Burlington.
