Located in Selma, Alabama, Arsenal Place Accelerator is the first business incubator in the city. We want to grow startup companies that will shape the regional landscape. The Arsenal Place Accelerator launched in January 2014 and is now home to five healthy businesses with more on the way. We seek to build a community around each business that will help it grow at an accelerated rate. In essence, we believe startup companies grow better within a community rather than alone. Affordable Space Once a startup company is admitted to Arsenal Place Accelerator, they pay a low monthly fee of $250 which includes: a spacious office, free Wi-Fi, access to all in one laser printer, and scheduled use of the state-of-the art boardroom. Funding We help all of our companies gain access to funding through our partnerships with the SBA, regional development authorities, local foundations, and community banks. In addition, The Arsenal Fund gives grants on a case by case basis to innovative startups seeking admission to APA. Business Community We believe that startup companies best thrive within a community. Each company at APA gains the expertise of the other companies housed in our incubator. In addition, we created a global network of mentors who desire to share their knowledge and expertise at no charge. Our mentoring is conducted in person or by cybercast through our boardroom.
