Introducing a new platform for strategic growth

York IE, VCET Partner to Support Vermont’s Startup Community

(MANCHESTER, N.H., Feb. 29) — York IE, a vertically integrated strategic growth firm, today announced its partnership with the Vermont Center for Emerging Technologies (VCET) to help support tech startups in the state.

Through the partnership, York IE will offer advisory services to VCET companies at a 10% discount. These services, which help businesses navigate the pressure and complexity of rapid scaling, will complement VCET’s benefits, including free business advising, mentorship, accelerator and coworking space in downtown Burlington, access to capital through venture funds and syndicate partners, and a robust platform of events, content and connection.

The partnership reflects York IE’s continued efforts to partner with state and local startup organizations across the country — and the world.

“Working with York IE and VCET gives me access to everything I need to scale,” said Molly Yanus, founder of StrAlign, a Vermont-based provider of strategic decision-making and prioritization software. “VCET offers access to high-level strategy, connections and capital, and the York IE team builds on that strategic guidance while also providing help at the execution level. It’s the right combination for anyone looking to build a sustainable, tech-enabled company.”

The nonprofit Vermont Center for Emerging Technologies opened in 2005 to support technology-enabled startups across Vermont. VCET believes that entrepreneurs can change the future by creating next-generation jobs, bringing new approaches to pressing problems and channeling their creativity, intellect and passion into impactful business solutions. With $15 million in evergreen capital across two funds, VCET has backed over 30 startups and emerging growth firms since 2010.

“York IE’s Advisory as a Service provides a natural extension to what we offer at VCET, and it could be a total game-changer for some of the companies we work with,” said Sam Roach-Gerber, vice president, VCET. “In this age of lean and nimble companies, entrepreneurs deserve partnerships like this that offer them all the tools they need to scale.”

York IE has expanded its network in the state of Vermont, which includes a partnership with the Vermont Technology Alliance. York IE provides hands-on guidance and expertise in three core areas:

  • product development;
  • growth marketing; and
  • finance.

“We’re excited to offer our strategic growth advice and tactical support to VCET’s roster of technology-enabled startups and help supercharge their scaling,” said Adam Coughlin, CMO, York IE. “York IE is ready to build this type of partnership in every state’s startup ecosystem.”
