Helping New Entrepreneurs Build Their First Business

CTnextStarting a new business is a daunting, intimidating process. This year I helped pass a new law that helps ease some of that burden, helping entrepreneurs make their business ideas a reality.

Senate Bill 303, now Public Act 16-1, establishes the Entrepreneur Learner's Permit program. This program helps first-time entrepreneurs establish their own information technology, biotechnology or green technology businesses. Connecticut Innovations (CI) will administer the program, reimbursing qualifying entrepreneurs for state fees associated with forming a business.

This program directly addresses the unique needs of the entrepreneurial community, allowing them to minimize some of the expense of launching a new business. Specifically, CI will reimburse approved entrepreneurs for any state filing, permitting, or licensing fees associated with forming their business in Connecticut. Visit the CTnext website to apply.

CI will review the effectiveness of the Entrepreneur Learner's Permit pilot program by February 1, 2018. Following this review of the program's economic impact on the state, the number of jobs it has helped create and businesses it has helped form, the Commerce Committee will determine whether the program should continue.
