HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Calling future entrepreneurs and innovators of all ages, your chance to develop that novel idea for an invention right here in the Rocket City.

“We have some of the best and brightest minds in the world, right?” said BizTech’s Director of Community Engagement’s Lance Gilbreath.

The Rocket City is full of bright people just waiting to break into the world of entrepreneurship.

“We’re known for being brilliant and smart,” Gilbreath said.

Perhaps their big break starts in Huntsville this week during the Innovation & Entrepreneur Weekend happening throughout the Rocket City.

“Innovation hopefully will bring them out of working their day job and ways of doing things that they’ve never thought about before,” Gilbreath said.

BizTech, Nexus Energy, the Chamber of Commerce, and AL.com don’t necessarily want you to quit your day job, but they do want to help you develop your passion.

“We have those resources here to plug into and mentors and advisors and just a whole list of resources that would be hugely beneficial for somebody who’s at home tinkering around,” Gilbreath explained.

This free event isn’t just for the left-brain, numbers kind of people. It’s also for the creatively motivated. To connect to the weekend’s creativity, no sign-up is required — just bring yourself and your aspirations.

Here’s a calendar¬†of the various events planned for Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
