CTNext Launches Entrepreneur Innovation Awards


Rocky Hill, CT (PRWEB) January 30, 2014

CTNext, Connecticut’s innovation ecosystem managed by Connecticut Innovations, today announced the launch of the Entrepreneur Innovation Awards (EIA), a competitive pitch process that provides awards up to $ 10,000 to entrepreneurs in Connecticut for growth-related activities.

Created in the 2011 Jobs Bill as an initiative of Governor Dannel P. Malloy and private-sector leaders, CTNext is a statewide network of entrepreneurs, mentors, service providers and others involved in helping Connecticut’s most promising startups succeed and grow.

To be eligible for the EIA, formerly known as the Voucher Program, startups must be Connecticut-based, registered as CTNext members, and looking to conduct growth-related activities to help advance their business. Project examples include but are not limited to: prototyping, performance testing, compliance testing, IP assessment, product or service development, market research, licensing, and more. A full list of the criteria can be found on the application page.

“We created CTNEXT to invest in our entrepreneurs and innovative startups because we know doing so will attract new business and private investment for the state, lead to the development of cutting-edge products and ideas, and create good paying jobs with good benefits for our residents,” said Governor Malloy. “The Entrepreneur Innovation Awards will allow this community to research, modify, or finalize their work and propel these businesses to the next level.”

To apply, candidates can visit http://www.ctnext.com/eia and fill out a short application for EIA, which will be evaluated by an internal committee at Connecticut Innovations. There is a rolling deadline for applications and pitch events will occur monthly at locations throughout Connecticut.

Finalists will be selected and asked to perform a five-minute pitch in front of a panel of expert judges. The judges will consist of company CEOs, mentors, investment professionals and other distinguished members of the entrepreneurial community.

“This is a continued effort to help businesses grow when they are at a pivotal point in the process of scaling their business,” said Claire Leonardi, CEO of Connecticut Innovations. “This grant award program can allow a business to make necessary modifications to a product, help to garner a better understanding of their customer or secure the proper licensing or patents to protect their business ideas.”

The first pitch event will be held on Thursday, Feb. 27, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Bijou Theater (275 Fairfield Ave.) in Bridgeport, Conn. The event is open to the public and guests should register at http://www.iplanevents.com/eia1.

“This money can go a long way for entrepreneurs that are interested in executing an activity that will help grow their business,” said Mary Anne Rooke, executive in residence at CTNext. “In addition to the funding, businesses also have the opportunity to improve their business or investor pitch by tapping into the expertise of mentors, executives in residence and growth advisors in the ecosystem.”
