What We Do

Our work is organized into three Strategic Initiatives: Talent & Workforce, Growth & Emerging Companies, IT & Infrastructure, plus over-arching Public Policy & Advocacy efforts.

Strategic Initiatives

Representing over 275 members and a community of over 6,000 companies with over 200,000 employees, CTC strives to serve its members and the broader interests of the State of Connecticut as they relate to the growth and success of technology-based development. Our work is essential to the cultivation of tech talent, organizations, and the fostering of an innovation ecosystem here in Connecticut.

CTC works to make Connecticut a vibrant location for innovation and growth by pursuing strategic initiatives designed to bolster Connecticut’s tech-talent pipeline, support companies at every stage of growth and development, and advocate for the best in tech infrastructure development.
