HARTFORD, Conn.—Ten Connecticut companies are receiving state grants in a program intended to help small manufacturers and technology firms develop and produce new products.
Gov. M. Jodi Rell announced Sunday the first 10 recipients of the Small Business Innovation and Diversification program. Each business received up to $25,000.
She says it can be difficult for a firm to launch a new product. The governor says the program will help spur job growth and economic development in the state.
The 10 companies are based in Bethel, Cheshire, East Windsor, Farmington, Glastonbury, Mystic, New Milford, Norwich, Southington and Stamford. They range from a medical device manufacturer to a company that makes turnstiles.
