UConn Stamford Technology Incubator Adds Six Startups, Completing Its First-Year Cohort

UConn Stamford’s Technology incubation program, Digital COUNCIL, is pleased to welcome six additional startups to its data science-focused membership, completing its freshman cohort. The newcomers, most of whom are in the fintech space, bring the total of TIP Digital startups to 23, from five when the facility opened earlier this year in mid-February (an increase of 360%).

Co-financed by the University of Connecticut (UConn) and StamfordNext, a nonprofit collaboration that awards grants to projects that support innovation and local entrepreneurs, TIP Digital is a key component of the larger Stamford Data Science Initiative, an effort by UConn, StamfordNext and CTNext to expand the data science sector in Stamford.

“We are very pleased to welcome these promising companies to our program.” Margaret Feeney, director of TIP Digital, said. “We look forward to supporting their development and are confident that they will enjoy the collaboration with all the companies in the UConn and Stamford data science ecosystem.”

Wes Bemus, CEO of StamfordNext, said: “It’s great to see the continued growth of TIP Digital. Since fintech was one of the first industries to overwhelmingly adopt elements of data science, it is naturally a growth area within TIP Digital, and at Stamford in general. “
