Mission

The Vermont Employee Ownership Center is a statewide non-profit whose mission is to promote and foster employee ownership in order to broaden capital ownership, deepen employee participation, retain jobs, increase living standards for working families, and stabilize communities.

We provide information and resources to owners interested in selling their business to their employees, employee groups interested in purchasing a business, and entrepreneurs who wish to start up a company with broadly shared ownership.

We are funded through government and foundation grants, and contributions from individuals and businesses. The VEOC is a tax-exempt non-profit educational organization. We are always grateful for contributions and in-kind donations.
