The project is the design and construction of Phase II of the Florida Innovation Hub at the University of Florida. Like Phase I, it will be a new, state-of-the-art, efficient and functional, multi-level technology business incubator facility. It will be connected to Phase I which is located in downtown Gainesville, close to the University of Florida campus. It will be approximately 55,000 gross square feet of office space, laboratory space, conference rooms, and other needed space for qualified technology startup companies. The use of this facility can be categorized in three parts. Part I will be dedicated as expansion space for the startups located in Phase I. Part II will be devoted to an Entrepreneurial Woman’s Center to provide ongoing assistance to an under-represented population in the entrepreneurial ecosystem. Lastly, it is envisioned that a limited portion of the space will be utilized for entrepreneurial-minded faculty working in technology areas conducive to platform technologies of the future.
