The Invention to Innovation Center, or I2C, is the home of a business innovation incubator program that serves a 15-county region in north Alabama and southeast Tennessee. The new business incubator is a hub for the development and acceleration of high tech business start-ups and serves as a catalyst for economic and workforce development. The exterior of the building is intentionally designed to fit the overall fabric of its location and it has an identifiable public presence facing Sparkman Drive. The building includes an enclosed connection to the existing College of Business Administration Building at the second floor, and a covered connection at the third level. At ground level, the new building is positioned to create an open and inviting pedestrian connection between the buildings to the inner part of campus.
