Willimantic, Conn: -- Eastern Connecticut State University will host a panel discussion on innovative technology start-ups in Connecticut mill towns on Nov. 15 from 3-6 p.m. in the Paul E. Johnson Jr. Community Conference Room of the J. Eugene Smith Library. The panel of Connecticut innovators and entrepreneurs will discuss their strategies for launching and building successful technology firms in the state's historic mill towns, where fabric, thread and other products were produced for hundreds of years.
In addition to the panel discussion, students from the four Connecticut state universities, Quinebaug Valley Community College and the University of Connecticut will compete for prizes by presenting innovation proposal posters of their creative startup ideas and proposals. A reception will follow, when students will be able to network with Connecticut entrepreneurs, innovators and business community members.
