Velocity Accelerator is a product of Innovation Depot, and it’s making major waves in the tech space across Birmingham and beyond. We met with one of their recent graduates to get the scoop on how this program has accelerated his business and turned a former side hustle into his full-time gig.

It’s time to scale up

Innovation Depot is accepting applications for the next cohort of their Velocity Accelerator, a specialized 13-week curriculum for founders who are ready to focus 100% of their time on their company. And, thanks to a new partnership with a Silicon Valley-based capital venture fund, the program is better than ever. 

Innovation Depot’s signature resources, like access to seed capital, opportunities to pitch for grant funding and unmatched mentor networks make all the difference. Just ask Thomas Coiner.
