Birmingham Tech Week

Birmingham Tech Week continues at the Festival of Enterprise

Birmingham Tech Week announces partnership with the Festival of Enterprise

Tech Week extended with six networking meetings at event focused on fast growth and scaling-up

Birmingham Tech Week, a collaborative series of events held across the City and the wider Greater Birmingham Region is partnering with the Festival of Enterprise.

The partnership marks an extension of Birmingham Tech Week which ran successfully from October 7th-13th.

The objective of Tech Week was to highlight Birmingham’s burgeoning tech scene.

The collaboration with the Festival of Enterprise is seen as an important opportunity to continue and develop the results already achieved by the inaugural Tech Week.

At the Festival of Enterprise, Birmingham Tech Week will be hosting six networking meetings.

Each will bring together a mix of technology providers and the owners of businesses seeking fast growth.

And, some of the businesses seeking to scale-up will also be tech enterprises themselves.

James Ashwood, Managing Director of the Festival of Enterprise, explains why this partnership is a good one for companies based in the Midlands. 

“The Festival of Enterprise has a significant tech element within it already.

Leading sponsors like Google, LinkedIn, Dell, and Trustpilot are key contributors to the event.

Events like the Festival of Enterprise, bring the business community in the Midlands together.

We see this partnership with Birmingham Tech Week as an excellent additional benefit to our audience.

It’s a further strengthening of the work we are doing to support Midlands-based business owners from our location at the NEC Birmingham.”

Speaking for Birmingham Tech Week, Yiannis Maos (Founder & Board Director) commented;

“For far too long Birmingham’s Tech scene has operated in silos, we talk about collaboration, but, it doesn’t happen as much as it should.

Tech Week is about celebrating our diverse, innovative and growing City, and showing the world why we should be seen as the first choice for setting up, scaling and investing in technology companies.

Working with the Festival of Enterprise provides an opportunity to keep tech at the forefront of business thinking, and that’s so important for companies seeking to scale.”

Birmingham Tech Week will be highly visible at the Festival of Enterprise next week, but in 2020, the collaboration will be even closer.

Next year, the Festival of Enterprise is moving dates so that it coincides with Birmingham Tech Week. It’s a strategic move designed to supercharge the focus both on technology and the development of fast-growth businesses in the Midlands. 

The Festival of Enterprise takes place 23-24 October at the NEC Birmingham.
