The goal of the CTNext Innovation Places initiative is to develop places that will attract the talent high-growth enterprises need.
CTNext says of Innovation Places, “Think of an area you can walk to, bike to or take a train to where your mind comes alive with possibilities; where you run into brilliant people solving big problems and inventing new technology; where the sidewalks and cafes are full of conversation; where art events and music venues brim with people making new friends—a place full of ideas. Such places attract talent like magnets. And they produce new solutions, products, and businesses that create jobs—high-skill, mid-skill, and low-skill jobs—quickly.”
These are the goals of the Innovation Places program; however, it is up to us figure out how to make that happen in Hartford.
Hartford-area entrepreneurs are invited to a moderated discussion Monday, August 15 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
This event is focused on entrepreneurs in Hartford or who have an interest in strengthening Hartford’s position as an Innovation Place.
At this meeting, seeks input from entrepreneurs regarding:
- What are the conditions you need for your business to succeed?
- What are the conditions you need to attract top talent to your business?
- What factors do you use to decide where to locate your business?
- What factors do you use to decide how to invest in your business?
The event will be held at The Artist’s Collective, 1200 Albany Avenue Hartford, CT 06112.
