A sprawling New Brunswick Tech Hub is in the works, according to Governor Murphy. New Brunswick is uniquely situated between New York and Philadelphia and innovation centers that include Rutgers University, Princeton University and a large variety of tech and life sciences companies and supporting organizations. The New Brunswick Tech Hub is still in the planning stages, and may take many years to come to fruition, but would be a boon for technology innovation in New Brunswick and New Jersey in general.
“Gov. Phil Murphy on Monday got behind a prospective 12-acre development project aimed at attracting new technology and other jobs to New Jersey. The Democratic governor met with officials from Rutgers University, local and state government, private businesses and others at the university to support the project, called the Hub. Murphy, who met privately with the group of leaders before he spoke to reporters, said the idea for the project goes back at least five years but what’s new is “the will” to push the project forward.”…The project fits with Murphy’s campaign promises to jump-start what he calls the state’s innovation economy, though there were few details on the project immediately available.”
