Jump and OSF partner with Chicago medical technology incubator

The Jump Trading Simulation & Education Center is mentoring entrepreneurs and innovators at a new medical incubator in Chicago.  

MATTER Chicago is a not-for-profit organization developed to create products and services to advance the healthcare industry. 

Governor Bruce Rauner and U-S Senator Dick Durbin were present today at the opening of MATTER. The State of Illinois gave MATTER a 2.5 million dollar grant and a 1.5 million dollar loan.

New technologies developed at the site will be refined then implemented throughout the OSF HealthCare system.
