Hybrid Zone X (HzX) is a nondisciplinary-entrepreneurial center in WID pursuing new combinations of research and education that lead to exponential possibilities for innovation. As an experimental space on the UW–Madison campus, HzX brings together the excellence of the university’s basic science and research and hybridizes it with the risk-prone style and spirit of entrepreneurial thinking to seed new ideas, entrepreneurial teams and ventures.
Built at the heart of the university and designed to promote interactions among researchers and the public, WID provides an ideal setting for HzX as a point of focus for cross-campus creative teams of entrepreneurial faculty and students creating new ventures.
HzX mirrors and amplifies the WID culture that values risk, rigorous free-expression and unconventional collaborations.
