An Act Concerning Innovation reads:
This bill establishes a number of mechanisms to stimulate and support innovation and entrepreneurship in Connecticut.
It establishes within Connecticut Innovations, Inc. (CI) a new entity called “ImpaCT” to support the entrepreneurship community and new business development in Connecticut (§§ 1-4). It gives ImpaCT a number of broad and innovation-specific powers and duties and creates a board of directors to carry them out. ImpaCT must develop and administer a number of programs to promote, among other things, university-based entrepreneurship, including a technology transfer office and a website to connect entrepreneurs to existing resources in the state. The bill funds ImpaCT and its programs by earmarking $87.75 million in existing Manufacturing Assistance Act (MAA), CI, and Manufacturing Innovation Fund bond authorizations (§§ 10, 16 & 23).
