BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — Nine entrepreneurs participating in a specialized energy-focused accelerator in Birmingham will outline the vision behind their business plans at a live Demo Day event on Tuesday.
The founders of these promising startups traveled from seven states and Canada to participate in the Techstars Alabama EnergyTech Accelerator. The companies specialize in technologies and business models to enhance the future of energy, including artificial intelligence (AI) for the power grid, renewable energy, consumer sustainability and weather prediction.
“The second class of the Techstars Alabama EnergyTech Accelerator has brought some of the brightest minds and entrepreneurs to the state of Alabama this fall,” said Tony Smoke, Alabama Power’s senior vice president of Marketing and Economic Development.
“We can already see the success of this year’s class and the investment they are making in the energy industry.”
