Letter From The President
NewTechHaven Resides at the Intersection of Innovation, Entrepreneurial Leadership and Economic Value.
Connecticut’s Business Community Can Reignite The American Dream.
The headlines are full of stories questioning the value of higher education and lamenting the lack of qualified employees. Rising tuition costs coupled with a lackluster job market for recent college grads are primary drivers of this ongoing debate. Constantly evolving technologies, new skill sets and a highly competitive global economy are among the key factors that must eventually reshape America’s higher education industry. Some employers even question the drive of today’s students and despair that America’s entrepreneurial spirit has passed. These opinions may be valid in some quarters, but not with the unique students employed by NewTechHaven. We can put those concerns to rest and enable your company to play an active part in creating real value for your employees, brand and customers – value that will also stimulate innovation and job creation in Connecticut.
At NewTechHaven, an innovative student-centric initiative, we are applying a unique, pragmatic, real-world approach to nurturing entrepreneurs and innovative leaders. These students will create new businesses, help start-ups succeed, tackle the growth challenges of established enterprises and, in the process, become a highly demanded talent source for the regional business community.
Everyone Has A Dream. We Help Make That Dream Come True.
The NTH model is simple and effective. We recruit students, faculty and alumni from Connecticut’s colleges & universities and, mentored by a team of seasoned business executives, concentrate on bringing someone’s dream to life. It can be anyone’s dream and all stakeholders contribute and learn equally. Experienced alumni who aspire to be their own boss, faculty who believe their research can improve people’s lives, students who elect to take ownership of their career ambitions or corporate executives driven to improve shareholder value. These are the people whom NewTechHaven is dedicated to support in a culture where student becomes teacher and teacher becomes student. Everyone is vested in the success of every initiative.
Engaging NewTechHaven Enables Connecticut’s Business Community
To Stimulate Innovation AND Realize Tangible Value.
Our budding entrepreneurs and emerging leaders strive to be immersed in solving real world business problems. They know that the true test is not just in the classroom but, rather, in the conference room, or on the shop floor, or in the programming bullpen. Your company can access a range of valuable benefits available through NewTechHaven or work with us on customized business solutions. Some examples are shown below:
Acceleration Plan – an intensive, six-week audit of current business plans, operations, and emerging opportunities, resulting in a detailed plan to accelerate day-to-day performance and revenue growth.
“Outside-The-Box” Business Consultation – an objective, third-party, and fact-based view of a particular issue or challenge your business is facing.
NewTechHaven Associate Business Consultant Internship – NTH executive staff will interview your manager(s), select the intern best suited for the project and, together, define the intern’s project and deliverables. NTH staff will coach and mentor the student intern to deliver high quality results while optimizing your management team’s time.
Business Plan Development – from scoping the potential of an idea, to constructing a comprehensive business plan, to providing a 3rd party analysis of an existing plan.
Start Up Audit – an objective checklist of an emerging business’ opportunities and challenges.
Brand Value Proposition – ensure a new business’ focus or an established brand’s relevance.
NewTechHaven invites you to learn more and to explore opportunities that can add value to your business or company. In turn, your company will be actively nurturing, and possibly employing, the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders. The NTH executive team and I will personally guarantee that your company will realize the highest value from what we intend to be a long-term strategic relationship.
