“With so many Vermont innovators on the threshold of bringing their ideas to fruition and to market, we are delighted to welcome Scott back to VtSBDC,” said Rossi. “With his vast in-depth experience, he will help innovators get to the next step, get unstuck, or obtain access to resources necessary to achieve personal and professional objectives.  This specialized advising is critical to the state’s post-COVID economic development strategy.”
