Innovation Depot’s new Voltage program is kicking off tomorrow with 11 entrepreneurs pursuing prototypes for their ambitious ideas.
Voltage is a nine-week program for people with a tech or tech-enabled business idea, but is tailored to those who want to work outside the traditional 9-to-5 hours. Before you can quit your day job, so to speak, you have to be able to create a minimum viable product, or MVP.
With that in mind, Voltage helps assess an idea’s feasibility and viability, and whether it’s time to take the next step, or head back to the drawing board. It’s one of several programs starting this year at Innovation Depot.
“We are very excited about launching Voltage because we believe it fills a unique gap in Birmingham’s startup ecosystem,” Director of Programs Kellie Clark said. “We know a lot of entrepreneurs in the area have great ideas, but they’re not quite sure if their idea is an opportunity. We are providing them with the space to ask questions, gain resources and learn the viability of their ideas before they go all in.”
