How Vermont Became a Hotbed for Health Tech Companies

Thus far, there’s no definitive list of Vermont’s health-tech companies. Nevertheless, an informal tally by Jeff Couture, executive director of the Vermont Technology Alliance, indicates that more than two dozen companies are engaged in developing health- and wellness-related technologies, including medical devices, software, IT consulting and data management services. According to a vtVA report, “Vermont’s Tech Employment: The Hidden Driver of Our Economic Growth,” the $5.6 billion overall tech sector accounts for one in four jobs in Vermont, with an average wage of $72,482, compared to a statewide average of $44,540.
