Growing businesses need capital, and no state realizes and responds to that need better than Connecticut. Whether the financing requirement is equity investment, fixed asset purchases of land, building acquisition, leasehold improvements, working capital, or the purchase of machinery and equipment, there are a multitude of financing programs available to support businesses large and small.
State programs include direct funding from the Department of Economic and Community Development and Connecticut Innovations. In addition, there is a network of local and regional revolving loan funds across the state to assist businesses with their financing needs.
