On Aug. 30, the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce will open the doors of The Lab on Dexter, a leading-edge entrepreneurial learning and innovation facility. Located on Montgomery’s historic Dexter Avenue, The Lab will provide a collaborative learning environment for entrepreneurs, with the goal of creating a sustainable social and tech innovation ecosystem.  

“Montgomery continues to cultivate a successful and sustainable entrepreneurial ecosystem,” Montgomery Mayor Steven L. Reed said. “The Lab on Dexter will leverage our unique cultural and IT assets with the needs of tech companies and small and minority business startups. I look forward to the possibilities this project will bring to our community.” 

Featuring small business suites and co-working spaces for lease, tech and entrepreneurial training, and an atmosphere that encourages collaboration, The Lab will help solidify Montgomery’s position as an innovation center and enhance the city’s reputation as a center of excellence for defense-related businesses. In addition to the Montgomery Chamber’s TechMGM initiative and the City of Montgomery, partners in The Lab are Montgomery County, the Montgomery TechLab (which will be housed in the new facility) and Alabama Power.
