At least two “Tech Hubs” winners have ties to Tennessee

One is at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, the other at Michigan State University.

As noted in an article last week, no proposal from Tennessee made the cut when the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) announced the initial winners in its “Tech Hubs” program.

Thirty-one applicants won outright designation as a “Tech Hub,” while 29 received Strategy Development Grants (SDG) to help their communities significantly increase local coordination and planning activities.

There were, however, some winners among the total 60 with ties to the Volunteer State.
