Abe’s Corner Grand Opening!

Please join us for the grand opening of Abe’s Corner at 200 North Street, Burlington.  Erik Hoekstra of Redstone and Stu McGowan of Shoeless Konstruction are completing construction of this new building that features 7 apartments and ground floor neighborhood-scale commercial space in the Old North End.  The site is located at the busy intersection of North Street, Elmwood Avenue and Intervale Avenue across from T. Ruggs.  This new building has filled in a vacant parking lot on a corner long-identified by the City as a critical development site in the advancement of the North Street revitalization efforts.

Where:   200 North Street, Burlington

We will also be celebrating the launch of the Abe’s Corner Accelerator opening soon on the ground floor of the building.  Founded by Old North End resident Sean Hurley, the Abe’s Corner Accelerator invests in, co-locates and supports start-ups that have the ability to scale through the adoption of best practices in digital marketing and advertising. We look for teams that are coachable, local and committed.

The Abe’s Corner Accelerator is the first funding vehicle in Vermont’s venture ecosystem dedicated exclusively to wealth-creation in the digital space. We operate out of Abe’s Corner in Burlington’s Old North End, one of the most diverse and dynamic neighborhoods in New England.
Start-ups can apply today for funding in the 2014 Winter Class at abescorner.com.

June “Scramble” morning networking event

Join us on Thursday, June 19 for our monthly morning “Scramble”. Our guest speaker will be Katelin Brewer-Colie, the Complete Streets Project Manager at Local Motion. She’ll be speaking about the new “Open Streets” initiative, with the kickoff event taking place in the Old North End on September 21st.
Open streets is based on the South American “Ciclovia” where a city closes some of its streets to cars for a few hours and opens them to bikes, skaters, scooters, runners and other forms of active transportation. Here is a video about the open streets movementwhich now exists in over 100 US and Canadian cities.

We encourage you to bring your ideas about this exciting new project and hear about it’s potential positive effect for O.N.E. Businesses, Non-profits and artists.
See you around the neighborhood!
