Montgomery TechLab recently hosted Demo Day for its inaugural cohort of 10 tech startups, allowing potential investors, stakeholders and technology professionals from around the state to see the businesses and solutions that have been developed during the preceding 12 weeks.
Montgomery TechLab provides startups value access to leaders across government, industry and education to accelerate growth and economic development across the Montgomery region.
These opportunities include connecting startups with local talent and building relationships with potential customers in the federal, state and local government and commercial sectors, aiming to better position themselves to compete in the digital economy.
“The accelerator program highlighted the incredible potential for tech startups to engage with local partners,” said Marcus Shaw, Montgomery TechLab founder. “It is clear that Montgomery has the resources and the vision to build a strong tech ecosystem that will drive growth in the region.”
The tech startup accelerator program focuses on mobile app development and is led by Shaw, former executive director of Chattanooga, Tennessee-based The Company Lab.
