CI invests in businesses that are principally located in Connecticut and are registered with the secretary of state. (You must register prior to receiving our funding.)
CI seeks technology-based companies based in Connecticut or willing to move here. We look for innovators in our core areas of expertise: bioscience, IT, clean tech, photonics and advanced materials. While we’re flexible when evaluating a potential partner, we also look for:
Companies in operation for less than seven years.
Non-recurring revenue from non-grant sources of less than $2 million.
At least 50 percent of employees in Connecticut.
Companies that can meet a 50 percent match requirement.
