FreshTracks Capital and their pack of “business bikers” will travel Vermont’s roads again this summer to “Road Pitch” events around the state. From Monday, July 30th to Thursday, August 2nd, Vermont entrepreneurs and business owners will make their “pitch” to this roving band of folks with investment, entrepreneurial/business, and business advisory experience.
This year, the annual Road Pitch returns to Rutland. Last year’s event was held at the Rutland Free Library. This year, the “business bikers” will travel to the Mint Makerspace, which opened in August 2017. The Rutland Road Pitch will take place on Wednesday, August 1st, from 9:30am – 12:00pm. The Mint Makerspace is located at 112 Quality Lane.

The course was held at REDC in downtown Rutland. The “local instructor” was Hannah Abrams of Business Coach VT, based in Killington.

In this case, this course was a “community” course offered in another region of Vermont.
