Accenture Federal Services arm has announced their plans to open a university-backed innovation hub in Huntsville, Alabama. This new Invention to Innovation Center at the University of Alabama will support collaboration across the region.

This move will provide the time and space to work on collaborative projects with industry experts and government leaders. Through funding, mentorship, and support, the center aims to help aspiring entrepreneurs develop and commercialize a variety of technology. Accenture aims to solve the biggest challenges facing the government and expand the nation’s digital transformation.

The center is open to those looking to learn about entrepreneurship, explore a technology-based venture, participate in I²C events, and be a part of the I²C entrepreneurial community.
