collatThe Collat School of Business will host an open house for the new UAB Innovation Lab at Innovation Depot on Thursday, Nov. 13.

The lab will serve as collaborative teaching space to help students expand their entrepreneurial thinking. Students will be able to work with the emerging businesses housed in Innovation Depot to gain firsthand experience starting a business and to learn what it is like working in a startup environment. 

In addition to being a teaching space, the lab also will be an early-phase business accelerator for student-led companies and ones developed by UAB faculty. These companies receive coaching and mentoring from Collat’s faculty on everything from market research to business plan.

The open house will take place from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 13 in Suite E-126 at Innovation Depot.
