Greg Sheek, director of Launchpad Programs, gives us an in-depth look at the Alabama Launchpad, a program of the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama.
In this week's show, Greg describes the Launchpad startup competition, time frame for submission (currently running 3 times per year), and the types of feedback that entrepreneurs who go through the competition receive throughout the process.
Greg also provides an overview of the annual Innovation Conference and SBIR grant assistance provided through the Launchpad programs.
This year's Innovation Conference is set for September 2, 2015 in Birmingham.
