Forbes recognizes two Vermont entrepreneurs

Corinne Prevot of Skida Headwear.

Corinne Prevot of Burlington and Tyler McNaney of Barre were named to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Class of 2018 earlier this month.

Prevot is owner of Skida Headwear and Accessories, and McNaney is founder of Filabot.

They were nominated for the award by the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development and were among a group of 600 young business leaders selected out of about 15,000 applicants.

Prevot started Skida in 2008, making ski hats for her Burke Mountain Academy teammates. The company has grown substantially since then, with products that are designed and manufactured in Vermont.

Filabot recycles discarded plastic to create filament for 3D printers, enabling clients like NASA and Google to adhere to more sustainable manufacturing processes. Started in 2011 by McNaney, Filabot’s Barre facilities are able to repurpose products like water bottles and washed up beach plastics to support the environment and help advance the science of plastic extrusion for the 3D market.

Forbes’ 30 Under 30 program is in its seventh year celebrating young innovaters.
