Have you ever tried getting somewhere you haven't been without using a map or directions?
Sometimes you make your way to your destination with only a few wrong turns, but other times you lose your way entirely. CTNext is here not only to help you find your way to your destination, but also to help make sure it’s the smoothest ride possible. The road of entrepreneurship is never an easy one to take, but with a little help along the way, it might just make a difference in where you end up. Our statewide network connects promising companies to mentors, collaborative work spaces, universities, vendors, suppliers and other like-minded entrepreneurs to help facilitate the growth and scalability of their business.
