Connecticut is ranked the fifth most innovative state, and in the top seven for venture capital funding. No wonder we’re steadily gaining a reputation as a great place to start and grow a tech company.

Rich source of talent

Connecticut’s employee productivity is at an all-time high, with output per worker more than 31% above the national average. Connecticut also ranks third as the state whose workers hold the most advanced degrees.

Prime business hub

You’ll find one-third of the U.S. economy and two-thirds of Canada’s. The highways, trains, ports and airports make Connecticut a prime business hub—one reason why we rank so high for per-capita exports.

Great place to live

Miles of beaches, bike trails, hiking trails, ski runs, plus acres of lakes, hundreds of top schools, quality restaurants and awe-inspiring museums. Whatever you love to do, you can do it in Connecticut!

Home to top universities

Connecticut is home to 42 universities and colleges, including Yale University, Wesleyan University, Quinnipiac University and the University of Connecticut.

Hundreds of successful entrepreneurs already know that Connecticut is turning into a great place to build a tech company. Why? New, state-supported innovation hubs in New Haven, Hartford and Stamford provide access to talent, mentoring and investment, and the workforce, quality of life and access to major markets are second to none.
