Innovation

In the middle of a violence crisis that Ciudad Juarez was passing through, this project was born with the intention of gathering diverse human talent and materializing ideas that once were only pipe dreams. Technology Hub is an entrepreneurial and innovate park open for companies, researchers, entrepreneurs, and global impact focused students willing to collaborate with other people using tools that this space offers, such as driving companies, an auditorium space, workspaces for private counseling, Coach assistance to clarify ideas and give proper direction, freelance workspaces, and thematic workshops on the following topics: FabLab, CoWorking, Entrepreneurship, Start-Ups, Business Incubation, Local problematic informative presentations. All of these features make Technology Hub the best place to inspire creative minds to achieve their goals.

Overall impact

Technology Hub was planned to make a difference in the city with the goal to solidify companies. Thanks to T-Hub efforts they have gathered 11,000 personal connections and 122 graduate entrepreneurs accomplishing over 200 work meetings.

Inspiration

An empowering novelty in the city. The intention of four experienced personalities has come to a reality that “Generates collaborative empowering” as declared by Rudy Vazquez, COO of the park. Seeing the city's deficiencies they felt the inspiration to create this innovative space in order to impact on a high-scale and that is how the project was conceived.

Companies and local start-ups that want to improve their business can do it in an ecological, fresh, and relaxed environment and have the possibility to lease work spaces from 250-1300 USD with multiple benefits to each project needs.

Social and environmental benefit

Being front-runners in the environmental caring trend, the design of the facilities of the Technology hub have thought of things like: a charging station for electric cars, the building illumination by LED lights, and water savings toilets. Technology Hub puts available equipment, qualified personnel, machines, and shared knowledge to give solution to problems that affect the community as well as the promotion of collaboration between people to boost economy of the region.
