The Shark Tank-style competitive pitch program is designed to help Connecticut’s early-stage companies develop their ideas and get their products to market. The program awards grants of up to $10,000 to fund projects that help advance Connecticut businesses.
Any Connecticut startup is eligible to apply for the Entrepreneur Innovation Awards. Funds can be used toward research and development-related projects such as prototyping, performance testing, compliance testing, product or service development, market research, and licensing.
The next Entrepreneur Innovation Awards pitch event will be held on Thursday, June 15 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at The LOFT at Chelsea Piers in Stamford.
