The Roux Institute at Northeastern University will open in the fall at a facility currently under construction in Portland, Maine. The new building, operated by WEX, one of 10 founding corporate partners of the institute, will offer 26,500 square feet of dedicated space with views of Portland Harbor.

Employees of WEX and other partners will be among the first students at the innovation hub, which is designed to drive sustained economic growth in Portland that will reverberate throughout Maine and Northeastern New England.
