Connecticut-- The state of Connecticut is looking for a few good manufacturers or potential manufacturers to participate in a two-year product commercialization pilot program.
The Connecticut Entrepreneurial Resources of Technology pilot program is sponsored by the Connecticut State Technology Extension Program (ConnSTEP) in conjunction with the Federal Manufacturing Extension Partnership. The goal of the program is to find five technology-based companies that are in various stages of development and are interested in commercializing a new product. ConnSTEP financial and technical consultants will provide free guidance throughout each stage of the commercialization process.
Eligible companies must be Connecticut-based manufacturers that routinely consider such issues as quality control, pricing and market placement in the process of taking their products to market. The business must also have the potential to eventually reach at least $10 million to $20 million in sales.
The companies will be selected this summer. Interested entrepreneurs should call (860) 832-4600 for an application.
