Did you know that Gainesville and UF are big tech supporters? In fact, the university’s tech incubator downtown, UF Innovate/The HUB, has sparked the development of the Innovation District, which straddles SW 2nd Avenue from 6th Street all the way to the university. Here, you’ll find both startups and established tech companies, many of which grew out of the incubator. Most are affiliated with the university, and those that are not have been drawn to the area due to its talent pool, low cost of living, and lab space, among other factors. Many exciting projects are being planned for this area, so be on the lookout for more info and announcements soon.
On a side note, Segway Group is a HUB supporter and you can find us at Thirsty Thursdays at the HUB every third Thursday of the month!
