NCCC Entrepreneurial Center of Northwest CT Opening March 15, 2017

In August 2016, Northwestern Connecticut Community College invited key stakeholders to strategize how the college could be more supportive to small businesses and new entrepreneurs to both sustain and accelerate economic development in Northwest CT. 

The key stakeholders on the advisory board included government officials in Winsted and Torrington, Northwest Community Bank, SCORE, Northwest CT Chamber of Commerce, Owners of start-up LLC’s, and additional industry experts in finance and accounting and marketing.

 It was clear that Northwest CT has the potential to strengthen public and private partnerships including government,academic, business relationships in promoting economic growth. To this end, the advisory board fully supports the opening of the Entrepreneurial Center of Northwest CT. The goal of the Center is to connect established and new entrepreneurs and provide business development support, education and training.

 A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at the Goulet Building, 56 Park Place at 4 PM. The community is invited to come learn about the full range of services offered by the Center, including co-working spaces for entrepreneurs to get their new businesses off to a successful start.
