We’re excited to partner with Brex to visit many of our GAN Accelerators around the United States in 2020! At each stop, we’ll invite the GAN Community—our accelerators, partners, investors, founders, and startup studios—and any of their friends to a private event, too.

On April 1, we’ll visit Velocity in Birmingham, AL, and host a happy hour that evening.

Where: The Essential, 2018 Morris Ave.

When: Wednesday, April 1

Time: 5:00-7:30 PM

Let us know you’ll be there!


About Velocity

Velocity is Birmingham’s premier startup accelerator. It provides early-stage, equity-driven, seed-funding and immersive startup acceleration services to emerging high-growth startups in the region. Once per year, Innovation Depot invests up to $50k into each startup progressing through Velocity. Startups move to Birmingham for three months, and we help to prepare them for investor approaches. During this intensive three month period, startups are showered with resources and paired with mentors who are entrepreneurs and founders of successful ventures. At program conclusion, Velocity startups pitch to investors during Demo Day.

We help startups of all sizes (from recently incorporated to later-stage companies) to instantly get a card that has 20x higher limits, completely automates expense management, kills receipt tracking and magically integrates with their accounting systems.
