Regional Partnerships

The Regional Alabama Launchpad program launches in 2017.  This new program provides a way for regions focused on innovation-based economic development to map existing programs along the capital continuum, create more clarity for entrepreneurs on where and how to access resources, identify gaps in the local ecosystem, connect local and state resources, and leverage funding.

The purpose of the Regional Alabama Launchpad is simple – to help more high growth potential companies start, stay, and grow in Alabama.

For more information on the Regional Alabama Launchpad, download the two-page flyer linked below.  For detailed information on criteria to become a regional partner, download the RFP (Request for Proposal) linked below.

EDPA will admit two regions per year over the next five years.  Communities that submit proposals that meet admission criteria will be admitted in the sequence received.
