What we’re about

Propelling ideas forward — that's the Urban Engine mantra, its raison d'exister. We are a Huntsville, AL - based 501(c)(3) non-profit on mission to propel the growth of North Alabama’s economy. Our programs accelerate STEAM innovation, connect aspiring entrepreneurs and established business leadership with educational resources, talent, and community, and provide a platform for professional development unique to the state.
