    Have you started a new business? Thinking about starting one? Have an existing business with capital needs?

    Tech @ Rutland Meet-Up may be your first step toward realizing your dreams.

    Green Mountain Power, Fresh Tracks Capital and the Vermont Center for Emerging Technologies will co-host Tech @ Rutland Meet-Up on Thursday, Feb. 21, at the GMP Energy Innovation Center at 67 Merchants Row, providing an opportunity for business owners and entrepreneurs seeking investors to meet and connect with resources to help rejuvenate local businesses, startups and the economy. The event will run from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

    This free event is an opportunity for local businesses and entrepreneurs to meet potential investors and discuss ways to jump-start new or existing businesses in an informal mixer atmosphere. Businesses and startups that need capital, interns, mentorship or advice from professionals from a wide variety of organizations are encouraged to attend.

    There won’t be any speeches, just an opportunity for entrepreneurs to trade information and ideas and make contacts with a variety of potential investors and supporters.

    In addition to GMP, Fresh Tracks Capital and VCET, the event will include leaders from the Rutland Economic Development Corp. , Downtown Rutland Partnership, Rutland Redevelopment Authority, Rutland Region Chamber of Commerce, Community College of Vermont, Launch VT, North Country Angels, the Vermont Small Business Development Center, the Vermont Agency of Commerce and the Vermont Technology Council.
