About Us

The Alabama Entrepreneurship Institute (AEI) was founded to promote and support entrepreneurship in the Culverhouse College of Business and across The University of Alabama.

Our goal is to grow businesses, create jobs, and provide students an opportunity to engage in real-world experiences. You can consult with existing businesses or build your own start-up.
