There are no shortage of opportunities for startups in Connecticut these days. First, Connecticut Innovations announced its “TechStart” program and expanded funding for early stage ventures (as part of the State of Connecticut’s October 2011 Jobs bill).
Now MassChallenge, which aims to be “the world’s largest accelerator program and startup competition”, visits Connecticut to hold an information session for entrepreneurs on its program, which features a Boston-based accelerator. The organization boasts that “the 111 startups supported in the 2010 accelerator raised over ~$100M in outside funding and created ~500 new jobs in under 12 months.”
The session will be held on February 21, 2012 at New Haven’s Bourse loft and meeting space from 6-9pm. The session is right around the corner from New Haven’s Grove coworking space – drop us a comment on this post to let us know if you’ll be attending, so we can say hello.
