Stamford, CT is considering converting its Old Town Hall into a startup and entrepreneurship center. The hall was formerly a Clairol plant and has since been leased to NY’s Chelsea Piers as a sports and entertainment complex. Old Town Hall would join many other incubators that have recently opened in the tri-state area, including Connecticut Innovations in Bridgeport, CT and Y-Enterprise in Yonkers, NY.
The space would also assist the University of Connecticut‘s comprehensive digital media studies program, planned to open at their campus in Stamford. The program would involve connecting local businesses and professionals with students.
