Rocket Hatch is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission to accelerate the startup ecosystem in North Alabama. We support entrepreneurs surrounding them with the resources they need to be successful.

We envision a dynamic North Alabama economy fueled by a vibrant and diverse startup community.  We are creating this vision one startup at a time.


Our region has a long tradition of technology and innovation; nonetheless, there is an untapped pool of talent and resources that wish to engage in new and creative forms of entrepreneurship. We believe there is an opportunity for great growth in areas that have not been traditionally our strong suit if we dare to think out of the box.

If we want to generate true innovation, our different communities need to overlap, connect and interact. We believe the best way to achieve this is through a sustainable startup culture based on collaboration, trust and encouragement:



over competition


over talking


over silos
