We partner with the City of Montgomery, Montgomery County, Alabama Power, the Lab on Dexter, MGMWERX, DCODE, and Fearless to help startups better position themselves for government and commercial customers.

We are currently accepting applications for the next cohort with the deadline being August 1, 2022.
