Alabama Innovation Fund provides boost for UNA UX center

FLORENCE, Alabama – The Alabama Innovation Fund is providing more than $80,000 to advance plans by the University of North Alabama (UNA) to set up a center that assists entrepreneurs and gives students valuable hands-on experience.

UNA’s College of Business is getting $81,300 from the Innovation Fund for a proposed User Experience (UX) Accelerator Center, which will primarily focus on assisting small and medium-sized businesses. UX is a term that refers to all aspects of a customer’s interaction with a company and its services and products.

UNA officials say the center will provide outreach to businesses in the Shoals area, along with testing and design services focusing on end-user experience. Undergraduate students will receive UX education as part of the program.
