Description: Why does Mondo do what it does?

  • THIS IS HOME: Mondo is Vermont-born and Vermont-based. The quality of life around here is unparalleled, and we never take it for granted.
  • YOUTH RETENTION: We believe that providing young people with professional opportunities and living wages ensures a resilient Vermont economy.
  • COLLABORATION OVER COMPETITION: We are lucky to be in an industry where collaboration will always win over competition. We are proud to work cooperatively with other marketing agencies and freelancers in our region.
  • SYNCHRONIZED UPLIFT: For every political struggle, change makers need a strong, organized network they can depend on and draw from. By boosting Southern Vermont’s people, we make their fights for a better world a little bit easier.
  • BUILDING A FOUNDATION: With a strong, self-sufficient economy, Vermont and greater New England can make things happen. Carbon taxes? Richer social programs? Technological innovation? Land conservation? The possibilities are endless.
