Spring Street Building will become UGA’s front door for industry engagement
The University of Georgia’s new hub for innovation is almost open for business. The Spring Street Building, just south of Broad Street near downtown Athens, is undergoing renovation and will open in January as UGA’s Innovation Hub, albeit with limited activity because of the pandemic. Once the facility is fully operational, as public health conditions allow, the new Innovation Hub will host UGA startup venture efforts and experiential learning activities, and it will be the university’s front door for industry engagement.
The opening of the Innovation Hub marks the next stage of UGA’s Innovation District initiative, a coordinated effort to expand the university’s economic impact through entrepreneurship, research commercialization and partnerships with the community and industries.
