Community Partners

Memphis is a city like no other. The University of Memphis is driven by doing because the city of Memphis is all about rolling up your sleeves, working hard and making truly revolutionary things happen every day. No one can make innovation happen alone, and we are glad to have an amazing network of partners who help us succeed in our efforts to make our city a center of technological innovation. Join us as we bring the SMART Future to Memphis.

Current Community Partners

On April 25th, 2016 the FedEx kicked off the community partners program, an opportunity for technology-oriented organizations which share the FedEx Institute's goal of making Memphis the leader in emerging technologies research to come together in a spirit of collaboration and connection. Memphis has more potential for excellence in technology innovation than any other city, and we are committed to working with all of the organizations in Memphis to realize this potential. 

Exciting Innovation in the University District

The FedEx Institute of Technology may be the center of technology innovation, but we know that Memphis is bigger than just our building. To that end, we are excited about the opportunity to help grow the University District into an innovation region. Working with international startups, local nonprofits, and organizations of all shapes and sizes, we are building the future of technology innovation right here in the heart of Memphis.
