“COVID-19 brought about so many challenges, some of which gave rise to the desire by many to be their own boss and start their own business,” Reynolds said. “This, coupled with a growing community interest in supporting ‘local’, and there’s just so much opportunity in the region to start and grow a business. KickstartNEK can help get those ideas off the ground.”

Do North Coworking is partnering with LaunchVT, the Northern Vermont Development Association, and Discover St. Johnsbury on this program, and received funding from the Vermont Community Foundation to offer this program free of charge to NEK entrepreneurs and small businesses.
