NW incubator groundbreaking Thursday
Purdue, Visclosky to break ground for high-tech incubator in northwest Indiana
Purdue University officials will join Indiana Congressman Pete Visclosky at 1 p.m. on Thursday (10/17) to break ground for a high-tech business incubator in northwest Indiana.
The incubator will be modeled after a successful facility at the Purdue Research Park in West Lafayette. It will be administered by Purdue with input from a community advisory committee.
"Purdue Technology Center of Northwest Indiana: Because high-paying jobs come from high-tech ideas" is the theme for the event, which will be in Merrillville on land south of 93rd Avenue, between Broadway and I-65.
No parking will be permitted near the event site. Journalists will be shuttled to the site from the little league parking lot on Mississippi Street.
