Birmingham, Solihull and the Black Country are leading European destinations with the resources to help energise your business and power your ambitions. Home to over 42,000 companies, including 900 international firms, we’re in the centre of a £94 billion regional economy.
The city region’s digital and ICT scene is thriving, home to the UK’s fastest growing cluster and employing 21% of the national gaming workforce. Further proven by its status as UK leader for e-commerce start-ups and the first BT Wireless City, Birmingham is the best connected UK city both digitally and logistically – with access to over 90% of the UK market within a four hour travel time and 143 direct scheduled & charter routes from Birmingham Airport every day.
It is an area of real creativity that delivers the ideas, entrepreneurial spirit and work ethic needed for business success, supported by Birmingham’s position as the highest ranking English city for university quality (Cushman & Wakefield, 2011). This results in an existing and emerging talent pool across the city region, which provides access to a working age population of 4.3 million and 97,000 highly skilled graduates within a one-hour’s drive each year.
