2010 Tech Companies to Watch

The Connecticut Technology Council has named the Tech Companies to Watch, Class of 2010.  Emerging Companies to be presented and honored for their potential and innovation on September 30, 2010.

The Connecticut Technology Council has selected approx. 100 companies as the 2010 class of  “ Tech Companies to Watch.” These start-up technology companies are from all technology verticals and represent an especially wide variety of software companies, some promising new green tech ideas and an impressive list of internet and new media companies.

The Tech Companies to Watch will exhibit at the The Omni Hotel in New Haven as part of the fourth Innovation Pipeline Awards, a celebration of the most promising early stage technology companies in the state. The Innovation Pipeline Awards are part of a larger event being held that day called the Cantor Colburn / CCAT Innovation and Entrepreneurship Summit and includes a northeast angel investor summit. The September 30th event will honor emerging technology companies that are considered to have the best potential for future business success.  A key aspect of the evening’s program is a technology showcase, a poster fair where all the “Companies to Watch” will participate in a mini-trade show.
