Educational Resources for Businesses

For 50 years Franklin County Industrial Development Corporation’s mission has been to strengthen our economy through the creation and retention of new jobs and build a business environment suitable to host capital investment. Our focus has largely been on the manufacturing sector but with businesses of all sizes and in all sectors being deeply affected by the pandemic FCIDC has decided to expand its services to provide educational opportunities to existing businesses and to individuals looking to start a business.

Topics will include how to start a business, financial literacy, and creating and maintaining an online presence.

We are also sharing videos from the Vermont Small Business Development Center, SCORE Vermont, and Others.*
