HARTFORD, Conn. (WTIC Radio)-- The global information technology consulting company Infosys announced Wednesday its plans to develop a technology and innovation hub in Hartford.

Governor Malloy says one thousand jobs will be created by the year 2022.

The Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development will provide up to $12 million in grants after certain job creation milestones are met through the Governor's First Five Plus Program.

The state will provide another $2-million in training grants.

Officials with Infosys say the hub will have a special  focus on insurance, healthcare and manufacturing, and that it will bring Infosys closer to its Connecticut clients and serve as the global hub for Infosys' InsurTech and HealthTech efforts.

Infosys' investment in Connecticut is a continuation of the company's commitment to accelerate innovation for American enterprise by amplifying top local talent with the best global talent and shrink the IT skills gap in the marketplace.
