Birmingham City

Birmingham is building on its engineering history and success in manufacturing with a new focus on digital technology. With three Universities it is seeing entrepreneurs choose to base themselves in City and West Midlands mayor Andy Street has a strong focus on the digital technology sector.

Birmingham is set to become the UK’s first large-scale test bed for 5G technology and is working to connect buses, hospitals and the emergency services with this new technology and encourage a new generation of start-ups to the area to take advantage of world-class streaming and broadband.

Our Birmingham group is cross-sector and shares great ideas and considers the digital city and all aspects of City needs from its Universities to its emerging technologies sector, from supporting its start-up community to its advanced manufacturing community. We meet regularly, invite each other to our own organisational events and have an inclusive cross-sector space where learning and experience can be shared and solutions found.

To facilitate the Birmingham group we use a platform where we can connect, share, meet online and learn called “Transform Birmingham.”
