The Vermont Innovation Commons will be a launching pad for entrepreneurs and innovators, a nurturing environment for startup and growth firms with the ultimate goal of creating living-wage jobs and retaining youth and innovation in the state.

As part of the Cambrian Rise campus in Burlington, Vermont, The Commons combines co-living, co-working, event space, and design lab space overlooking Lake Champlain. With resources open to the business public, this pioneering project captures the benefits of the sharing economy, the state’s entrepreneurial DNA and Vermont’s work hard, play hard lifestyle.

The Commons is slated to open for business by 2020, with planning and recruitment underway now. In the meantime, we’d love to hear from you! Reach out about space availability, collaboration, and questions at, or sign up to receive updates:
