How to Become a CTNext Partner

If your organization has a project that can help entrepreneurs grow their companies, we’d like to hear more about you. We accept request for information (RFI) applications on a rolling basis, so please apply any time.

CTNext will review all applications upon receipt. Candidates who meet all requirements and show the most promise will then be invited to submit a Request for Proposal (full application).

If you are interested in applying for this program, but are having difficulty providing all requested information or experiencing any other obstacles stemming from the COVID-19 crisis, please reach out to Rachel Ferreira at We are happy to make allowances during this difficult time.

Before submitting an RFI, you must review the terms. These include information about the application process, funding, and reporting requirements.


Eligible grantees include individuals, for-profit companies, non-profit organizations and consortia. Selected Partners must be based in Connecticut and willing to maintain residence for the duration of the project contract.
