Angel Investor Bill

April 6, 2017

Standing before my colleagues in support of expanding the angel investor program.

The angel investor program is a step closer to helping more small businesses -- adding jobs to the workforce -- and growing the Connecticut economy. After my Commerce Committee gave its approval, and sent the legislation to the floor of the House for consideration, the bill passed unanimously in the House of Representatives.

This bill will help more start-ups and small businesses gain access to the capital they need to grow their business and create jobs in our state. Since its inception in 2010 the angel investment tax credit program has helped more than 100 businesses. This legislation will continue that momentum.
