Launched in May 2016, Innovate Huntsville Week has become an annual signature event. “Innovate Huntsville is a conglomerate of organizations who support Huntsville’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and is active year-round. Innovate Huntsville Week is meant to shine a light on the resources that are available and inspire future entrepreneurs to establish their businesses in Huntsville,” Vickie Morris with RISE and Face to Face Marketing said.
This year’s presentations will involve diverse technologies:
* Identifying the origin of memory manufacturers and foundries by UAH.

“The roadshow is a fun and exciting event where the audience gets to see up close and personal the technologies of companies like NASA and UAH,” Morris said. “Many scientists and engineers, creators and makers right here in North Alabama are tasked to create technologies that serve the needs of their clients” and eventually benefit the public.
