Building Connecticut's Future

Fighting to make Connecticut a top state for business, jobs, and economic growth

We’re the leading voice for business at the State Capitol and before regulatory agencies, promoting policies that drive job creation, economic growth, a fiscally responsible state government, and a competitive business climate.


In 1815, with Connecticut’s infant economy threatened by export embargoes and British import dumping, a group of business leaders met in Middletown.

They set in motion 200 years of businesses working together, protecting and promoting the state’s rich legacy of ingenuity and innovation, pushing for government accountability, and fighting for fairness—whether on trade policy or taxes, regulations or healthcare costs.

That leadership role is testament to the commitment and energy of CBIA members and their willingness to champion change at the State Capitol, shape debate about Connecticut’s economic competitiveness, and fight for a better future for all.
