In the fifth episode of this bi-weekly series, co-hosts Alex Irwin-Hunt and Yessi Bello Perez explore the entrepreneurial landscape in the UK’s second largest city Birmingham.
Joining the show to provide their take on the start-up scene is Hilary Smyth-Allen, the executive lead at Supertech WM, a cross-sector partnership that promotes Birmingham and the West Midland region’s growing professional tech cluster. The second guest is Melissa Snover, the US-born founder and CEO of Rem3dy Heath Group, a Birmingham-based 3D printing start-up that produces personalised health solutions under the brands Nourished and Scripted.
With additional comments from Jof Walters, the co-founder of Million Labs, a ‘no-code’ company which helps new start-ups launch, this episode provides a deep dive into the key attributes of the Birmingham tech community and its potential to drive the post-Covid economic recovery.
Listeners can expect discussion of topics ranging from the cost advantages of starting a business in the West Midlands, the diversity of its talent pool, what’s needed from the UK government to keep up its momentum, and much, much more.
