Great Ideas

Community Investments prides itself on researching and applying new concepts in economic development and job creation. The feasibility study for a high tech incubator in Essex, VT was the first effort of its kind in Vermont. CI’s current project to develop a “co-working” site in White River Junction, VT is the first of its kind in Eastern Vermont.
