Try on VR goggles, learn about local startups and look for a job in Vermont during Innovation Week in Burlington, Vermont — the city that brought you Ben & Jerry’s, Burton Snowboards and Bernie Sanders.
Innovation Week (October 14-22) highlights the energy of Burlington’s entrepreneurial, technological and creative ecosystem. Powered by BTV Ignite and its partners, including Seven Days, this weeklong celebration has something for everyone who loves what Burlington and Vermont are — and what they can be!
The week began with the annual Hack VT, a 24-hour hackathon in which teams competed by building education apps, and it will end with the 10th Vermont Tech Jam. This job fair and tech expo on October 21 and 22, has more than 65 exhibitors, many of which are hiring. If you’re looking for a gig in the 802, this is a good place to find it.
Here’s a full list of the remaining Innovation Week events, including Beer and Gear socials featuring VR experiences on an HTC Vive.
