Available data on Connecticut technology sector growth is impressive. While places like New York and California have seen tech hiring slow in recent years, this state’s tech-supportive job opportunities increased by a pace well above the national average. That talent force has delivered major advancements in the sector. Some of Connecticut’s rankings include:
- 4th most innovative state economy
- 1st in Health IT adoption
- 9th highest in 5-year tech job growth
Connecticut’s biggest challenge today is finding enough technology talent to fuel this pace of industry expansion. Higher education institutions like Yale and the University of Connecticut serve as a conduit for hiring tech companies, with Connecticut software engineering programs regarded as some of the best in the country.
