Expanding Connecticut's Innovation Economy

CTNEXTThis year, I joined my Democratic colleagues in passing legislation that will encourage Connecticut's entrepreneurs to start the businesses they have dreamed of, and provide them with the support they need to be successful. This month, a key piece of that legislation has gone into effect, with CTNext taking applications for Connecticut's new "Innovation Places." These Innovation Places will combine entrepreneurship support with physical locations conducive to the creation of startup companies.

Communities interested in establishing an Innovation Place are eligible for grants to help them conduct a strategic planning process to identify emerging relevant conditions and to build a master plan that leverages the resources and assets in each community to create new opportunities. Should their plan be approved, the communities can then receive additional grants that will help develop a business incubator, coworking space, expanded technology infrastructure and more.

Applications for planning grants are now being accepted and are open through Monday, Sept. 12, 2016. Visit ctnext.com for more information on the program or to apply.
