Who We Are

The Vermont Employee Ownership Center is a statewide non-profit whose mission is to promote and foster employee ownership in order to broaden capital ownership, deepen employee participation, retain jobs, increase living standards for working families, and stabilize communities. We provide information and resources to owners interested in selling their business to their employees, employee groups interested in purchasing a business, and entrepreneurs who wish to start up a company with broadly shared ownership.

There are lots of folks doing great things in the employee ownership world, and one of my goals this summer was to get into a pattern of recording conversations with such folks on a regular basis. Thus far, we've been fortunate to have Camille Kerr on to discuss her work on Employee Ownership Trusts, Nathan Schneider to discuss his recent research into Louis Kelso and the origins of the ESOP, and Oliver Goodenough to chat about his work at the intersection of blockchain, law, and ownership design.

The Vermont Employee Ownership Center (VEOC) and the Burlington Community Economic Development Office (CEDO) are pleased to announce their co-sponsorship of a free “lunch and learn” seminar on employee ownership as an ownership succession option for Burlington business owners. This event is a follow-up to two trainings that the VEOC has provided CEDO staff to help familiarize them with how employee-ownership exits work, as well as how to identify companies that might be good candidates for that path.
