SPEAKER: Margaret Angell and Christopher J. Wolfel
TOPIC: Status and Future of the Roux Institute a Hub for Innovation in Maine
Formed by David and Barbara Roux in partnership with Northeastern University with generous support from the Harold Alfond Foundation, the Roux Institute at Northeastern University was planned as a Portland, Maine graduate school in the fields of advanced technology and life sciences. David is from Maine was a co-founder of Silver Lake, a global leader in technology-based private equity investing.
In addition to the graduate school, the Institute also has entrepreneurship programs and offers research services to corporations emphasizing artificial intelligence, life sciences, engineering and human data interaction. Accepting its first students in 2020, it now has over 450 students enrolled in graduate degrees and certificates.
In sum, given the commitment of the founders and partners (over 100 corporations, academic institutions, and community groups have partnered with the Roux Institute to date) this new model of higher education has the potential to transform the Portland and even Maine economies.
Our speakers will provide an update on the plans to transform Portland into a center of education and technology-based entrepreneurship. As you may have heard, the Institute recently acquired the Boston Baked Bean plant site on which it will build its campus, conference center, and residence facilities.
