Relocate or startup your business in Southern Vermont
Have you been considering a change of scenery for your business? Vermont is well known for its beautiful seasons and landscape. And we are only 3 hours from NYC, 2.5 from Boston and 1.5 from Hartford CT. The eastern side of the region is bordered by I-91, the scenic Connecticut River and NH, and Amtrack train service runs into Brattleboro. Southeastern Vermont boasts 6 colleges, 3 regional high schools and multiple middle and elementary schools.
Let us here at BDCC show you how attractive the rest of the Vermont package can be for your business. We’ve lived and worked in Southeastern Vermont for years, and can vouch for the quality of life you’ll find, both personally and professionally.
Since 1954, we have been at the hub of economic progress in the Windham County area, so we know the in’s and out’s of doing business in this region. We can help you build relationships at the local, state, and federal levels to better achieve your business goals. Whether its managerial, technical, regulatory, and/or financial guidance you need, our business relocation services will help to set you on the right path with the right people for moving your business to Vermont.
Will you be needing to rent commercial space, when you relocate your business? BDCC owns and manages an Act 250-approved industrial park and two business parks/incubators in Brattleboro, offering low-cost viable rental space. We would be happy to talk with you to see if any of the space fits your company’s needs.
We are also working with towns and other developers in Southeastern Vermont to maintain an updated list of both industrial, commercial and retail opportunities. Please call us to set up an appointment to discuss your business and location needs.
For other commercial space in Vermont that might be available for rent or purchase, the Vermont Department of Economic Development has a useful tool online called the Vermont Commercial/Industrial Site Locator.
Additional areas of expertise where we can offer you mentoring, advising, and assistance include:
- Business assistance partners at the local, state, and federal levels, to help with business plan development, risk assessment, financial projections, funding resources, marketing strategy, and market analysis, just to name some of the topics we cover.
- Financing and incentive guidance and information on available resources, such as revolving loan funds, state development banking, and tax incentive programs.
- Manufacturing assistance to help your new company achieve lower costs and higher productivity.
- Entrepreneurial support, including our annual Business Plan Competition and education and training opportunities.
Several useful fact sheets developed by the State of Vermont to assist you in relocating your business here can be found on the Vermont Department of Economic Development’s website.
