Alabama Innovation and Mentoring of Entrepreneurs Center

Serving as UA’s technology commercialization center, AIME helps transform inventions into products that benefit society. From developing an idea, creating a prototype, and launching a company, AIME personnel will work alongside you to turn your idea into a product.

AIME is home to the University of Alabama’s Innovation Corps Site (I-Corps Site), sponsored in part by the National Science Foundation. Through our I-Corps Site, we provide infrastructure, advice, resources, networking opportunities, training, and modest funding to enable STEM teams to transition their work into the marketplace or become NSF I-Corps Team applicants.
