Investment Strategy

At Connecticut Innovations, we create value not only through market-rate returns on our investments, but also by leveraging private-sector capital, by building high-revenue and income-generating companies, and by helping to spur high-quality job growth. We depend on milestone achievement to attract the next level of capital investment at an increased valuation.

To evaluate investment opportunities, we look for:
Management strength:
Having the right people in the right job. We help our partner entrepreneurs build their management teams, advisory groups and boards of directors.
Market impact:
The product(s) or service(s) must represent significant innovation and fulfill a critical need within a large potential or existing market.
Technological advancement:
The company must hold a proprietary and defensible position through its intellectual property estate, a significant first-mover advantage or deep technical know-how.
