Economic Development

Improving access to capital in communities across Alabama


ACN seeks to collaborate with all innovation ecosystem participants to create a more vibrant Alabama.

ACN is proud to partner with many of Alabama’s leading public and private entities to build a stronger, and intentionally diverse, entrepreneurial ecosystem. This includes collaboration with universities, incubators, accelerators, and chambers of commerce across the state’s urban and rural communities.

Our work not only provides economic benefit through making investor/founder connections, but also supports job creation, community engagement, talent migration, and a more robust ecosystem for all involved. Investment in the entrepreneurial ecosystem is vital for the growth of our state as we seek to grow our innovation economy.
