Mayor Craig Lowe, University of Florida president Bernie Machen, and U.S. Senator Bill Nelson joined more than 200 others to celebrate the ribbon cutting of the 48-thousand square foot facility.
Speakers talked about how the hub would foster growth of the technology sector, help bind UF to the community, and create jobs.
The Hub opened in October and is already home to 15 startups.
