VDW is a proud sponsor of the vtTA Tech Job impact report. The report highlights the pervasive and positive impacts of tech employment on Vermont’s economy. The goal of the report is to help showcase, and hold on to, these tech jobs to help growing firms hire and retain qualified employees, so that they can continue their expansion within state borders.
