Vermont Native Monique Priestley is the founder and Executive Director of Bradford’s Space on Main. 

This dynamic downtown hub combines the programming and resources of a business incubator with the equipment and environment of a creative makerspace.

Since 2017 Monique and a well-cultivated board have engaged their rural community and met the challenges of developing a diverse set of programming and resources to meet the desires of their community.

Listen in and find the parallels between Monique’s experience and yours in your rural community.  Appreciate her entrepreneurial passion and the real numbers this resilient organization is posting despite a global health crisis.

There is much to learn and to appreciate in this latest SMG’s ‘Are We Here Yet?’ Podcast.
