An initiative of Innovation Depot and TechBirmingham.

A TechBirmingham and Innovation Depot Initiative

TechBirmingham, Innovation Depot and several key business partners including Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama, Regions Bank, Alabama Power, 2B, Isotope 11 began discussions centered around how to create more opportunities for local companies to do more business together with a focus on IT products and services.

The result of these initial discussions is the Keep IT Local Pledge. Companies on both the "demand" and "supply" side are encouraged to sign the Keep IT Local pledge on this website. By signing the pledge, companies are committing to consider local technology suppliers as a resource when possible and local suppliers are committing to understand buyer needs and find ways to grow their capabilities to match those needs. In addition to being recognized, pledge signees have an opportunity to access a database informing buyers on products and services available.
