University of Alabama at Birmingham, REV Birmingham and the Birmingham Business Alliance are leading the initiative, but many more organizations have been involved in the planning and launch of The Switch, including:

  • Alabama Capital Network
  • Alabama Power
  • Alabama Works
  • Birmingham Bound
  • The City of Birmingham
  • Innovate Birmingham
  • Innovation Depot
  • Shipt
  • Tech Birmingham
  • Urban Impact, Inc.
  • Venture for America

In addition, to these groups, we have been working with area property owners, existing business owners in the area and developers of key properties to inform them of The Switch and work with them to determine how they, as stakeholders in the area, can help build out the physical plant that will help Birmingham make “The Switch.”
