‘A very nurturing environment’: UConn aims to fuel economic growth with Stamford startup incubator
By Paul Schott
During the past few years, the University of Connecticut’s Stamford campus has grown at a striking rate — as seen in its rising enrollment, residence hall openings and expanding list of academic programs.
Now, UConn is further building its presence in the city through the expansion of its Technology Incubation Program (TIP), its longstanding initiative to support startups in the state. The new Stamford incubator focuses on firms working in data science and aims to leverage the expertise and experience of UConn students and faculty, who are playing an increasingly prominent role in fueling the area’s economic development and innovation.
