Our mission is to help businesses start, grow and thrive by providing customized advising, education and network resources to entrepreneurs and small businesses in Connecticut.
Who do we help? Everyone who wants to create and build their own strong small business. From inventive preteens to accomplished serial entrepreneurs, and sole proprietors to world class organizations—we’re thrilled to work with anyone who rolls up their sleeves, ready to make their dreams come true.
This program thrives because the advisors are embedded into the communities where small businesses exist. CTSBDC clients create viable businesses, generate long-term jobs and access more money to expand and start businesses with our help.
