Cairn Cross – Managing Director of Fresh Tracks Capital

It’s been almost a full month since our last podcast! Justin took a short break down to Florida and was also filming on location. But, we’re back and ready to rock!

Our first guest after the winter break is Cairn Cross Managing Director of Fresh Tracks Capital and the Road Pitch. Cairn has a wealth of banking and venture capital experience and knowledge. It’s hard to bottle up all of the information in one interview. In fact, we had to cut this interview down to fit in under an hour! We’d love to have him back to continue the story of the Vermont economy.

This is a must hear podcast about doing business in Vermont and venture capital. If you are an entrepreneur looking for funding or a business person, in general, you’ll love to listen to this insightful chat.
