StartUp Support in Birmingham
From its humble industrial beginnings as a small trader town in the West Midlands, Birmingham has grown into the UK’s second city with over 1 million people living here.
Rapid development in beautiful new buildings, improving infrastructure and retail outlets has created a bustling city full of diverse culture. There’s the cosmopolitan Bullring shopping centre, the artsy scene in Digbeth, the beautiful gems and stones for sale in the Jewellery Quarter, the corporate businesses on Colmore Row and the fashionable King’s Heath. Birmingham really does have a lot to offer. The rest of the world agrees too; with over 38 million visitors in 2015 spending over £6 billion! So it’s perhaps no surprise then that in 2015, Birmingham was ranked as the top UK city outside London for new business startups.
The great facilities and infrastructure, central geographical location, access to a skilled and young talent pool coupled with much lower rents and rates than London makes starting a business in Birmingham a fantastic opportunity for entrepreneurs with high growth ambitions.
