Press Conference In Support Of Small Businesses

February 23, 2017

The first bill, House Bill 5583, broadens eligibility for the already successful Angel Investor program. Currently the program only applies to five different sectors, but this bill expands that criteria.

The second bill, House Bill 5584, establishes an 800 hotline for small business owners that will link them with financial, technical and management assistance. We were joined by Jamison Scott, Executive Vice President of Air Handling Systems in Woodbridge, who spoke to how these bills would benefit small businesses, local communities, and the Connecticut economy.
