The only ‘Big B’ in the country, Birmingham is known for its diversity. Its passion for food, music, and architecture invites attention. However, today, Birmingham is not only known for its foodies or music and movies enthusiasts, but primarily for its digital sector. Hailed as the “first manufacturing town of the world” during the 18th century, Birmingham was the light bearer of technology, scientific research, and economic development in the region. It accommodated thousands of raw ideas which later manifested into the formation of a diverse array of industries and trade segments.
With a growing talent base of over 20,000+ employees in the digital sector, Birmingham is now considered to the largest technological hub in the UK.
In the years to follow, the growth trajectory in the digital start-ups promises a dynamic boost to the growing UK economy. The new start-ups will come with great opportunities in terms of diversity in ideas, welcoming innovative businesses through entrepreneurs and corporations.
