Governor M. Jodi Rell today announced that a state initiative to spur the development of high-tech start-ups, foster additional economic development and stimulate job creation is expanding to a third location: the University of Connecticut Health Center campus in Farmington.
CTech at the UConn Technology Incubation Program is a joint initiative of Connecticut Innovations (CI), the state’s quasi-public authority for technology investing and innovation development, and the University of Connecticut’s Office of Technology Commercialization.
“New businesses will benefit from a full range of resources provided by CI and UConn,” Governor Rell said. “We are putting a major emphasis on speeding the start-up and commercialization of innovative technology-based companies. Small and mid-sized businesses create the vast majority of jobs in our state and our state is leading the way in a number of high-tech fields.
