Remember what you were doing in 1989? We do. It?s the year we were formed by the Connecticut State Legislature to help promising technology companies get off the ground. Fast-forward 20 years. Today, CI is the leading source of financing and ongoing support for Connecticut?s innovative, growing companies. With the addition of our Small Business Innovation Team in 2009 and our merger with the Connecticut Development Authority?the state?s lender?in 2012, CI now proudly serves great Connecticut companies, no matter what stage of growth they?re in.
