Innovation Depot launches “Voltage” to help entrepreneurs test drive ideas

Eleven entrepreneurs pursuing prototypes for their ambitious ideas are nearing completion of the second week of a new nine-week program offered by the Innovation Depot in Birmingham.

Titled “Voltage,” the focus is on individuals with a tech or tech-enabled business idea, but wanting to work outside the traditional 9-to-5 hours. Before they can quit their day jobs, they want to be able to create a minimum viable product. “Voltage” will help them determine viability to see whether they should forge ahead with the concept, pivot or go back to the drawing board.

“We are very excited about launching ‘Voltage’ because we believe it fills a unique gap in Birmingham’s start-up ecosystem,” said Kellie Clark, Director of Programs at Innovation Depot. “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.”
