The Switch

Birmingham’s Innovation Destination The Switch district

The Switch is an innovation district located in downtown Birmingham. It’s a place designed to help startups thrive in the Magic City while fueling a vibrant innovation-based ecosystem. The Switch continues to showcase success and become a source of pride for Birmingham and the state of Alabama. The Switch is a locus for innovation, a critical mass of entrepreneurs, and a place to grow ideas. Plus, it’s a tightly knit community that supports and inspires entrepreneurs of all types from all backgrounds.

As one of the largest technology incubators in the country, Innovation Depot has already established itself as Birmingham’s community for innovation and entrepreneurship. The Switch draws on this energy and creates a path to expand economic opportunities and growth beyond the walls of Innovation Depot.

As companies outgrow the Depot, we’re helping them locate affordable office space inside of The Switch, so they can continue to lean on the district for support and community.
