Entrepreneurs with diverse ideas comprise latest cohort of Innovation Depot’s “Voltage” program

Fifteen entrepreneurs have been tapped for the latest edition of “Voltage,” Birmingham, AL-based Innovation Depot’s program for bringing nascent ideas to the marketplace.

The six-week program, which launched early last year (see article here), enables people with an idea for a tech or tech-based business to move toward a prototype. “Voltage” operates outside of the traditional nine-to-five business shift, allowing founders to keep their day jobs while they test out how viable their ideas are, and figure out the next step. Participation requires no previous tech or entrepreneurship experience, and participants work with industry experts toward launching their companies.

The latest cohort involves a variety of start-ups – from one helping people find and hire landscaping companies to those offering a simplified medical record retrieval process for law firms, addressing food waste at home, and focusing on heart disease in African-American women.
