Looking Back at 2021…
The Vermont Tech Jam career and tech expo, returned to Burlington on Saturday, October 23, 2021. The weather was perfect, and so was the timing. Dozens of employers came to Hula with open jobs to fill.
Roughly 1,000 mask-wearing Jammers wandered through the former oven factory to talk tech including job seekers, college students, entrepreneurs, FIRST robotics coaches and teachers — including Karen McCalla, the recently announced Vermont Teacher of the Year. Exhibitor space sold out; so did the afternoon session.
The Tech Jam concluded with a keynote presentation featuring Beta Technologies founder and CEO Kyle Clark and Beta’s first customer, Martine Rothblatt, CEO of United Therapeutics. They spoke to a standing-room-only crowd about their unique partnership, and where they see Beta going over the next few years.
