Membership has its benefits. As a CTNext member you get access to the following:

Exclusive Programs
Benefit from special programs and events, like our Entrepreneur Innovations Awards (EIA), which provide funding for innovative project ideas; SBIR/STTR counseling and training; the Technology Talent Bridge internship grant program, and more!

Partnership Network
Through our CTNext partnership network, you have access to collaborative work environments, business advisors and technical programs that help you grow your business.

Mentoring and Networking
We can help you find mentors and advisors, and network with other businesses that may be in a similar growth stage or, even better, have knowledge to share about their own experiences.

Business Resources and Services
Our Resource Wizard and Member Directory will help you access top service providers and other resources. We can also connect you to public agencies and organizations that can help you learn, plan and grow.

Personalized Attention
When you sign up to become a member, our intake specialist will work with you to determine where you are in the process of creating and growing your business and identify resources that can help you along the way.

Support Network
Many Connecticut startups and early-stage companies have gained value from the relationships with other member companies that have developed through participation in our programs – supporting each other with counsel and connections.

IT’S FREE!
CTNext is free to join and can help you find additional public and non-profit managed resources within Connecticut’s innovation ecosystem, also at no charge
