Where it all started:

VCET and Hotel Vermont co-founded the Female Founders Speaker Series in 2016. Celebrating female entrepreneurs from around the state, the series aims to share what it takes to start a company from the ground up. Each speaker shares the story of their business, including what it took to get started, lessons they’ve learned, and where they hope to go in the future.
