Hartford is one of only three cities in the country to be selected, as part of a competitive process, to participate in the Obama Administration’s Strong Cities, Strong Communities (SC2) Challenge. The purpose of the initiative is to challenge people like you to form a team and develop a transformative Economic Development Plan—one that establishes Hartford as The City for entrepreneurs. The goal is big, maybe even audacious. So are the rewards. Teams that develop winning plans will be awarded from a total pool of $800,000.
