Virtual Tour of mHUB – Midwest’s Leading Physical Product Innovation Center
August 27, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm CDT
mHUB is an innovation center for physical product development and manufacturing. mHUB is a prototyping lab and entrepreneurial community of product designers, developers, entrepreneurs, engineers & manufacturers.
Chicago and Midwestern manufacturing have always been the heart of the nation’s economy. It is an industry where smart, hard-working people come together to use machines, tools and human labor to transform raw materials into brilliant and useful new products. It also is an industry of people who know what it means to have the grit, discipline and work ethic to roll up their sleeves and do the heavy lifting.
mHUB fosters connections between local manufacturers, university researchers and our city’s entrepreneurial community of makers and technologists, not to mention investors who are eager to support new businesses.
mHUB’s 63,000 square-foot facility contains 10 fabrication labs, including electronics, plastic fabrication, metals, textiles and rapid prototyping, as well as a microfactory for small production runs.
