Tech Support

If you are a dreamer, come in.
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer . . .
If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire,
For we have some flax golden tales to spin.
Come in!
Come in!
- Invitation, Shel Silverstein

"Connectivity is a path to greater opportunity. In today’s world,
broadband and fluency with technology fuel economic growth, provide
access to the world’s knowledge, promote skill development, and build
stronger and more connected communities." - White House Connect All Initiative, 2016

Burlington is one of the most connected cities in the country, but it doesn't feel that way and few are talking about it. How are we simultaneously so technologically advanced and chronically out of step? Why haven't we embraced our potential as a technology/innovation hub? Where is the disconnect?

Tech Support was created to answer these questions, share knowledge and widen the embrace of the innovation community. Good ideas so often languish because of lack of understanding and community encouragement. Solutions to the issues of inequality and stagnation in our economy cannot be resolved without genuine connection. We want to know your truth. We want to connect dots. We want to learn about the dots you've already connected. We want to break through boorish apathy and find new voices. Let's build data for what we know to be anecdotally true! Then let's work together to find solutions and create enough small wins will tip the scale to real change!

Calling all #BTV and #VT Innovators! Students and Seniors, Entrepreneurs and Artists, Makers and Mothers, "Kids from 1 to 92", and everything in between. What grinds your gears? What lights your board? Do you have an idea that is before its time? We have that time for you. Have a burning question? Topic for debate? A Call To Action? A Bone to Pick? I. Am. Here. For. That.

Enthusiasm is contagious. Lightning pitches are hard! Tech Support is the long-format S.T.E.A.M.-y platform local #VT innovators to have been waiting for.
