    WHAT WE DO

    CAPITAL ACCESS

    For Alabama companies with established traction and interest in expansion, ACN offers a network of sophisticated investors. Our investing members, many of them industry leaders, are passionate about their state’s welfare and eager to support its innovation.

    MENTORSHIP

    ACN prides itself on being not only a network of capital investors and customers, but also being a pillar of entrepreneurial mentorship. This takes place through educational events and one-on-one connections between entrepreneurs and successful local business people.

    CUSTOMER ACQUISITION

    ACN’s network of Corporate Impact Partners and Corporate Institutional Supporters allows for ACN to play a matchmaker for startup companies looking for their first few large customers. Leveraging this network has created meaningful sales for entrepreneurs and has allowed for a more rapid acceleration of their sales pipeline.

    ADVOCACY

    In addition to helping individual companies, ACN supports initiatives benefiting Alabama entrepreneurs at-large. ACN has collaborated with the UAB Commercialization Accelerator and the University of Alabama EDGE Advisory Board to further identify opportunities for improvement and growth. ACN also works closely with the Innovation Depot Velocity Accelerator program and the Alabama Launchpad initiative of the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama.
