Significant progress toward making Hartford and East Hartford recognized hubs of innovation and entrepreneurship activity has been made over the last two years.
Hartford/East Hartford Innovation Places staff, along with its Board of Directors, is currently seeking proposals for new programs and investments for its third year of community investment to expand the program’s reach and build on its success.
The intent is to continue programs that can create significant impact within our community and develop new initiatives and partnerships that will strengthen this region’s ability to:
- Attract and retain top talent
- Create a great environment for companies to start and grow
- Increase access to sources of capital for emerging and growing companies
- Create a more vibrant and cohesive work/live/play sense of community
Programs and projects seeking funding through the Hartford/East Hartford Innovation Place program should demonstrate significant ability to accelerate the realization of these conditions, and address goals specific to one or more of the focus areas listed above.
Proposals should be able to be fully executed and show measurable results within the third fiscal year for this program, which spans July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020.
