The free magazine is distributed inside the daily edition of the Valley News on the last Tuesday of each month and is available at select locations throughout the Upper Valley. The magazine also is published online at http://enterprise.vnews.com.

Both the print and online editions of Enterprise offer a wide-ranging look at the Upper Valley’s business community — from the largest institutions that are the foundation of the region’s economy to the individual business owners and entrepreneurs whose passion provides the creative spark that makes the Upper Valley so vibrant, so interesting and so livable.

Each issue features a local cover story, along with interviews, essays and columns on topics ranging from agriculture to the creative economy to human resource issues to workplace advice. Contributors include Valley News staff writers and photographers, along with freelance correspondents and members of the local business community.

For more information, email enterprise@vnews.com or call 603-727-3302.
