“X” Space Launch Open House

The X Space at Xavier University launched yesterday and was celebrated with an open house event.  A large number of folks attended the event to meet the team, learn about the program and explore the space.

The space is clean, industrial and conducive to small group meetings; I call this innovation-ready.

One of the highlights of the even was an announced partnership between 3D printing company Makerbot and the university.  Xavier is now one of 4 centers in the nation that has these 3D printing capabilities.  Pretty awesome setup and a great backstory on how the deal was inked.
