Hartford makerspace wins CTNext contract

The state-backed entrepreneurial program CTNext said it's making an investment in a fledgling Hartford makerspace.

CTNext said it awarded contracts to MakeHartford and the Refinery of Westport. MakeHartford was founded in 2013 as a place for tinkerers, artists and others to collaborate on projects.

The contracts target projects that support entrepreneurs and small companies, create jobs, and develop skilled workforce talent.

CTNext also renewed contracts with the Connecticut Invention Convention of Hartford, social entrepreneurship incubator reSET, and organizations in New Haven and Fairfield County. The new and renewed contracts total $650,000, according to Connecticut Innovations, which administers the CTNext program.

CTNext has nine other partners around the state.
