The Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund serves clients connected to agriculture and food system, forest product, waste management, renewable energy, and environmental technology sectors.
Our services are tailored to meet individual client needs at their different stages of development:
Business assistance services help Vermont companies create and retain jobs, reach new markets with their products and services, plan for the future, and strengthen the sustainable economic development of our state. Value chain facilitation services identify gaps in supply chains and opportunities for product development and overall market growth. Network development services help diverse stakeholders find a common agenda around which to connect, align, and take action on systems level change efforts. Strategic planning services drive action-oriented results through organizational analysis and adaptive planning. Financial services support the management of the Flexible Capital Fund, LC3, occasional grant making, and fiscal sponsorship.
We periodically work with clients from other states and regions seeking to replicate our approach. We are also available for speaking engagements and presentations on how we accelerate sustainable economic development.
