Make a difference in Birmingham’s startup ecosystem on #GivingTuesday!

What is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back! Today, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world have come together for a shared goal: to celebrate generosity and give.

Why give? Innovation Depot is a 501(c)3 startup incubator and your support makes our programming possible. In 2015, Innovation Depot has expanded impact in the region through the launch of Birmingham’s first developer bootcamp: Depot/U and, in 2016, the Velocity accelerator.

Depot/U nurtures the local technology talent pool – Through a ten-week intensive developer bootcamp program, we train beginners to emerge as entry-level front engineers. Depot/U ensures that our region has the workforce needed to support local businesses.

Velocity will accelerate high growth startups in the region – Startups that progress through the Velocity program will receive seed funding and participate in immersive, mentor-driven business acceleration that will help them to emerge as investable businesses.

At Innovation Depot, we give entrepreneurs a competitive advantage in attracting customers, talent mentors, press, and funding to grow their business. Join us in nurturing the local technology talent pool and supplying startups with the downstream resources they need to succeed. Because Innovation Depot is a 501(c)3 organization, your contribution may be tax deductible. By participating in #GivingTuesday and supporting Innovation Depot, you will become a member of our Depot Donor Program. Depot Donors receive recognition in our annual report and special invitations to events. Depot Donor giving levels start at $50 and can be made via our website or by mail. Depot Donors with contributions of $1,000 or greater will be recognized in Innovation Depot’s annual report and/or website.

On #GivingTuesday and every day, thank you for your support!
