mHUB to Receive $9.6M to Expand Clean Energy Innovation in IL

mHUB, a new Chicago innovation center, recently held a grand opening ceremony for the state-of-the-art 80,000-square-foot physical product development and entrepreneurship property located at 1623 W. Fulton Street.

Illinois Governor JB Pritzker and other public officials and industry leaders joined the event that celebrated the culmination of a two-year-long effort to relocate mHUB and expand Illinois’ capacity for driving early-stage products toward commercialization, particularly in areas such as clean energy and sustainable manufacturing.

mHUB is receiving $9.6 million from the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity to work on technology solutions for a clean tech economy through energy infrastructure, grid modernization and long-energy storage.

“To make Illinois a leader in clean energy innovation, we need institutions like mHUB that convene public and private sector interests towards a common goal, such as protecting the future health and economy of our state by developing new solutions to our climate crisis.”

– Illinois Governor JB Pritzker
