Help for Investors
The state of Connecticut offers an Angel Investor Tax Credit Program, administered through Connecticut Innovations to encourage accredited angel investors to support local startups that are Qualified Connecticut Business. To qualify for the tax credit an accredited investor or network of accredited investors must invest at least $25,000 or up to a capped investment of $2 million. If the investment, investor, and business qualify for the tax credit the investor will receive a tax credit of 25% of the investment to take against their Connecticut state income tax.
