Technology Talent Fund
Technology Talent Advisory Committee
The Fund is administered by the Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) with the advice and counsel of an advisory board.
The Technology Talent Advisory Committee is legislatively tasked with three actions:
- Calculate the number of “software developers and other persons” (A) employed in tech-based fields where there is a shortage of qualified employees and (B) employed by businesses located in Connecticut as of December 31, 2016.
- Develop pilot programs to recruit tech talent to Connecticut and train residents of the state in tech-based skills with the goal of increasing the number of skilled technology workers in the state.
- Identify other tech industries where there is a shortage of qualified employees in this state.
