Entrepreneur Learner’s Permit

The Entrepreneur Learner’s Permit program encourages entrepreneurship and job growth in our state. The program provides up to $1,500 in reimbursements for costs first-time entrepreneurs incur in information technology, biotechnology, and green technology industries.
To receive reimbursement for fees, first-time entrepreneurs must complete a two-step process:

  1. Complete and submit the application below.
  2. Once approved (you will receive notification via email), a CTNext team member will reach out to you to collect receipts for reimbursement.

Please note: The program only applies to fees incurred as of July 1, 2016. Fees incurred prior to that day will not be eligible for reimbursement.

Please log in with your CTNext Member Login to access this application.
