Innovation Depot’s CEO announces plans to return to private sector

Birmingham’s Innovation Depot will be looking for a new Chief Executive Officer after Drew Honeycutt announced that he will be leaving the post by the end of August to pursue something in the private sector.

According to this article, the start-up incubator underwent a brand refresh, began two entrepreneurial programs, unveiled a mobile app, and revamped its Birmingham campus during Honeycutt’s slightly more than two-year tenure.

Founded through a public-private partnership in 1987, Innovation Depot is a non-profit 501(c)(3) tech accelerator and incubator located in a 140,000 square foot building in downtown Birmingham that previously served as a Sears Department Store. It is home to approximately 110 start-up companies that employ more than 1,500 individuals.
