Roux Institute partners with WEX on a new facility in Portland

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.

The institute’s new home is adjacent to Portland’s East End and Munjoy Hill neighborhoods. The Roux Institute will be within walking or commuting distance of its 10 corporate partners, providing those companies with ready access to educational and research programs that are suited to their specific needs.
