On the tenth anniversary of the Innovation Summit, we’re making sure the event is bigger, better, and the most business-friendly event CT has ever seen!  Join us for Connecticut’s largest networking event for Launch, Growth and Proven companies, featuring workshops,  Lunch with an Angel, Company Showcase, and more! Perfect for entrepreneurs, businesses, venture capitalists, angel investors, and members of the public.

Launch, Growth & Proven Companies: Showcase your Innovation!

Company Showcase slots are limited!  Companies are encouraged to apply immediately!   No fee to apply, upon selection – registration fee of $150 includes an 6′ exhibitor display table, access to workshops, investors, technology companies, and lunch.  Selected companies will be notified on a rolling basis.  Application deadline is November 1, 2016.


Calling all researchers, inventors, tinkerers, makers… anyone working on an idea that will totally upend the industry for which the product is destined!


As part of the 2016 Innovation Summit, the Connecticut Technology Council is holding a contest to determine the Most Disruptive Technology under development in Connecticut.  We are soliciting submissions on the form found below that answer the following questions:

  • Name, address and contact info of person or people submitting the technology.
  • What product or service have you devised that you consider disruptive?
  • What industry will it disrupt?
  • How will it disrupt that industry?
  • Describe the current industry landscape and how your technology will affect it in the future.
  • Provide any information on awards, patents or notable collaborations that have already been received by this technology or service.

Applications must be submitted by November 3rd to be evaluated.

Once your idea is submitted answering these questions, it will be evaluated by a panel of judges that have extensive background in a broad number of industries.  Based on the panel’s recommendations, the CTC will announce the 3 finalists on November 10th.  Each of the finalists will be given an opportunity to make a 5 minute “pitch” on his or her product or service at the closing session of the 2016 Innovation Summit on November 17, which is expected to attract over 500 attendees.  The audience will then vote live – with results shown in real time – to determine the Most Disruptive Technology winner.
