Innovation Hub
at Research Park

Innovation Hub

This 40,000 square foot facility is designed to become a resource for the faculty and students of both Texas Tech University and the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center as well as community members interested in launching new ventures.

As Texas Tech becomes a major national research university, the TTU Innovation Hub at Research Park is a critical step in building the knowledge-based economy of West Texas.

Students are the future of our innovation-based mission. To aid them in developing their entrepreneurial ideas a new student organization, Texas Tech Innovation, Mentorship and Entrepreneurialism (TTIME), has been created and will be housed in the research park. Public-private partnerships will be able to lease space to develop companies within the facility.

 

The Innovation Hub at Research Park is located at 3911 4th Street, Lubbock, TX, just west of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.
