Being an entrepreneur is hard…you know what’s harder? Accelerating your business! As time-consuming and stressful as it can become, many VCET members and Vermont entrepreneurs are able to successfully launch their business by utilizing our #ScaleHere Perks Platform. Here at VCET, we have always strived to ease the pressure of finding accessible resources, from offering affordable co-working membership at $100/month to launching the #ScaleHere Platform in April 2019, we are always looking for ways to make resources and business discounts more accessible to entrepreneurs across Vermont.
