Innovation Week is...

a celebration of creatives, risk-takers, and innovators. Through a series of fiercely collaborative events produced by Birmingham’s most pioneering public and private institutions, Innovation Week showcases transformational ideas and ventures evolving in Birmingham. The week bridges the gap between local entrepreneurs, talent, and capital -- ultimately accelerating our already thriving startup community. And with everyone’s attention captured by emerging innovation, we seamlessly lead into the Southeast's preeminent technology convergences: Imerge, Sloss Sport, and Sloss Tech. Check back with us soon for even more events happening during the week!

We know that innovation cannot happen without deep collaboration between public, private, and grassroots partners. Over a dozen institutions came together to make Innovation Week a success.
