Posted on February 11, 2021 by admin


The State of Connecticut’s online business portal – business.ct.gov – continues to add more features that will make it easier for entrepreneurs to find information and services that aid in the process of starting or managing their businesses in Connecticut. Using feedback gathered from entrepreneurs, the state has continued to customize this one-stop-shop experience for users.

Some of the newly added features during this most recent update include:

  • Resource Center: Users can now access a customizable resource center that centralizes 170 different programs for businesses. These resources pull from multiple sectors and disciplines, providing financial, technical, and equity-based support programs for business owners in any stage of their business lifecycle. Users can receive personalized recommendations for resources based on their business and then save them all into a powerful, tailored collection that stays inside their account.
  • Business Dashboard: When users log in, they will see a new dynamic, content-rich dashboard that will cut down on the time needed to find crucial business information, link companies to state compliance needs, and equip business owners with vital, time-sensitive alerts that can impact their business.
  • Connecticut COVID-19 Content: Users will be able to find the latest updates on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic right from the dashboard. This includes point-of-time data with direct access points for deeper exploration of vaccination numbers, positive cases, business and employer resources, and official state guidance.
