Mission, Strategy & Goals To fulfill our mission, we need to have agreement within the larger community on the importance of excellence and the best strategies for achieving our goals. As the catalyst that brings innovators and their supporters together, the Connecticut Technology Council will continue to advocate for the policies that will help place Connecticut in the center of technology innovation. For a state to thrive economically, it must continue to reinvent itself through innovation and job creation. Perhaps more than any other state, Connecticut has the necessary combination of factors to be a major contender in today’s global marketplace: an educated workforce, the availability of wealth and risk capital, some of the world’s best academic institutions, and an intense history of success and invention that runs through every part of the state.
