BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - From access to capital to business basics, Vermont’s BIPOC small business owners face a range of barriers to growth, but there are resources available to help.

Recent focus groups were part of a larger project coordinated by the Vermont Small Business Development Center examining the challenges facing underrepresented small business owners in the state.
