Jared Reynolds to Lead Vermont-based Forest Industry Business Accelerator

Charlie French


I hope you will join me in thanking Jared Reynolds for his dedication and excellent work with UNH Extension’s community and economic development program over the past four years. Jared’s last official day with Extension will be Thursday, September 30.

In the coming weeks, Jared will be taking on a new professional opportunity managing Do North Coworking, where he will start and manage the new Forest Industry Business Accelerator. The goal of the accelerator is to bring innovation and accelerators business growth in the forest industry by developing new resources and starting a cohort accelerator program that brings together around a dozen businesses each year. 

In his four years with Extension, Jared launched the Making Matters makers space just North of Concord, he sparked two entrepreneur networks, partnered on the Community Changemaker Challenge to instill social entrepreneurship skills in high school youth, and he implemented a number of impactful community-based programs across the state.

As some of you may know, Jared and his partner welcomed a new baby boy into the world, Bennett Theodore Reynolds. We wish you well in the wonders of parenthood!

It has been a pleasure working with Jared and we look forward to finding ways we can continue to collaborate! Please join me in thanking Jared for his contributions to Extension!
