Introduction 

The Innovation Birmingham team is actively looking to work with and bring together the public and private sectors, creating interfaces for people with ideas, people with technologies, people with expertise and experience, and people with money. It is a one-stop-shop for innovators, entrepreneurs and investors looking to develop or fund tech start-ups with high growth potential.

The Innovation Birmingham strategy is focused on a service offering for founders of new technology ventures, as well as more established tech businesses. The campus facilities include the Entrepreneurs for the Future (e4f) centre, hot-desking facilities, as well as a wide range of flexible office units (115-10,000 sq ft). 

The Campus strategy is about encouraging people to visit, engage with the businesses based there, and attract new tenants to join the thriving tech community. By creating a wide range of valuable opportunities, the missing aspects of a successful business puzzle can be resolved, helping innovators and tech entrepreneurs to gain invaluable exposure and to succeed.

The ERDF supported e4f centre is specifically focused on creating new innovative technology ventures. Since establishing in November 2009, it has supported the creation of over 110 new technology companies.

E4f provides smart incubation for a period of up to nine months, which includes access to a team of Entrepreneurs in Residence, who can help build a robust action plan and accelerate the development of your business into a commercial enterprise. Start-ups in e4f can take advantage of well-established links with funds such as Finance Birmingham’s Tech Fund. 

Other benefits of the e4f incubator include access to our co-working space, 1-2-1 sessions with our visiting experts, round-table discussions, workshops, partner benefits, showcasing opportunities and investment days.  In addition, a purpose built Test Lab contains the latest digital devices and software for developers to test their apps and programmes. Innovation Birmingham also delivers 100+ events every year, all of which are offered free of charge to those accepted onto the e4f incubator.
 
This eco-system is why incubated companies are far more likely to survive than those that go it alone. Applications to e4f are welcomed from those working to create businesses in cloud, gaming, social media, applications, digital technologies and low carbon sectors.

For technology companies that are a little more established, or not suitable for a structured support programme, Innovation Birmingham also offers Membership packages, starting from £99 + VAT pcm. Members instantly become part of the community and gain access to a range of additional services and opportunities designed to accelerate the development of their business.
