Vermont Center for Emerging Technologies
  FreshTracks Capital, L.P. is an early-stage venture fund, combining the
financial resources of $11 million in venture capital with the strategic
  resources needed by entrepreneurs to build thriving businesses in the Champlain Valley and throughout Vermont.  As an affiliate fund in the Village Ventures, Inc. network of funds, FreshTracks makes equity investments of up to $1.5 million in companies that demonstrate a compelling and defensible competitive advantage.  Larger investments can also be organized.

The intellectual capital of Vermont and the investment experience of FreshTracks provide a winning combination.  Middlebury College, the University of Vermont, and IBM's world-leading silicon chip manufacturing facilities, plus Vermont's renowned quality of life, are magnets for talented entrepreneurs.  The FreshTracks Capital management team has a deep background in business finance and strategy, as well as direct operating experience in growth companies.  Linked to the national Village Ventures network of professional and financial resources, our local roots and networks support the growth of innovative businesses through multiple rounds of financing.

FreshTracks has supported VCET clients with introductions to angel investors and to the broader venture capital community.
