”Rural lifestyle plus this unbelievable mix of people and things going on. I left city life and never looked back – we eat better food, see more music, spend more time outdoors and less time in traffic.”

Zirwat, Community Development Director

“You don’t see a lot of locally focused businesses like ours any more in the rest of the country. We make a real difference because we are committed to our community.”

“People who join my team seeking the same things that brought me here – a challenging and meaningful job in a place with incomparable quality of life.”

Michael, Tech CEO

“I moved back to Vermont where I grew up, and joined a small local firm doing work similar to what I was doing in the city. I’ve had more chances to learn, be mentored, to advance and become a leader in our company’s growth, and raise a family in a place we are connected to.”

Skye, Investment Director

”It can be intimidating to move here and the internet doesn’t have all the answers. Ask a Vermonter – we love to help. Personal relationships are how we do things here.”

Kayla, Family Advocate

”My kid can play outdoors for hours, we can live in a community where people know one another, and I get to work with the absolute best people in my field, anywhere. That’s SoVermont. Being here is a dream come true.”
