The terms technology and non-technology are less meaningful today than they were five years ago..
Today what matters most isn’t whether companies create or use technology, but how they apply innovation to compete — innovation in new product ideation, research, growth strategy, and manufacturing.
CTC is actively lobbying for the technology community and invites CTC members to contribute and comment to CTC and direct to your legislators.
Right now, the Council sees a window of opportunity for Connecticut to position itself as a place where innovation thrives — a place where support for new ideas, technology transfer, collaboration, risk capital, spinoffs and inventions flourish.
But we’re not alone.
Every State in the country is pursuing sustainable economic growth policies, and many countries offer lower cost labor and other operational efficiencies compared to Connecticut.
It will require grassroots leadership, coordination, and political determination for Connecticut to become a place where innovation truly thrives.
Over the next several months, the Council’s public policy goal is to create a bold strategic plan and constituency of leaders that will build a vibrant culture of innovation in Connecticut. This long term vision will become reality through grassroots leadership and collective action.
CTC visits Washington several times a year to meet with leaders from other technology councils from across the country, agency officials and to walk the halls visiting our congressional delegation.
