New York-based Ideanomics closed on a $5.2-million purchase of the 58-acre former Univ. of Connecticut campus in West Hartford from the State of Connecticut. The fintech and asset digitization services company plans to transform the property into a world-renowned technology campus named Fintech Village.
The company plans to invest more than $283 million to create an ultra high-speed computing facility and laboratory for developing new and leading edge fintech solutions utilizing artificial intelligence, deep learning, IoT, and blockchain.
Ideanomics’ Dr. Bruno Wu says, “We intend to expand upon the original campus’ dedication to excellence by enhancing the efforts to educate, create the ultimate in learning and R&D environments, and by building out the campus to attract top tier academic talent, companies, entrepreneurs, and innovators from around the world.”
