Hula is a business accelerator, venture capital fund, and lakeside coworking campus in Burlington, Vermont. Situated along the shores of Lake Champlain, Hula is creating a new innovation district for Vermont’s high-growth businesses. The 160,000 sq. ft. of building space has been reimagined from an industrial oven factory into a net-zero campus designed to maximize collaboration between already established businesses, new startups, investors and experts. The two new buildings provide office space and designated coworking desks for up to 800 people. Steps from Lake Champlain, Hula has an indoor/outdoor event space for up to 500 people, a full-service restaurant, a fitness center and the Burlington Surf Club right next door.
