Innovation in Vermont?

Share on Twitter+1Share on LinkedInSubmit to StumbleUpon

I’m often asked whether there is a a significant amount of innovation occurring in Vermont aside from IBM (enough to warrant my existence as patent attorney, I guess).  Fortunately, the Agency of Commerce & Community Development has put together a slideshow showcasing the innovative culture we have here in the Green Mountain State.  As the list of companies makes clear, there is a wide variety of innovations occurring here – from the somewhat expected ski inventions (Renoun Ski Company) and zero sort recycling (Casella Waste Management) to the less expected robots (Terasem Movement Foundation) and virtual reality systems (IrisVR).  We may not be Silicon Valley, but we’ve got a culture that fosters all types of intellectual and artistic endeavors.

Got an innovation not on the Agency’s list that should have been? Tell me about it.
