We’re in Birmingham, the city
that exists because of entrepreneurs who saw the 3 ingredients in the ground to create an entire industry and a brand new city. Now, over 100 years later we want to spark new batch of new companies here in Birmingham… ones that make use of the latest technologies and the entrepreneurs that make Birmingham a TOP THREE mid-sized city for entrepreneurism according to Entrepreneur magazine (2 years running).
New companies will be created
to join other successful tech companies in Birmingham… this is a VERY small sampling of the 500+ tech companies in the region SUNGARD EXP
The “Birmingham Model” of the
StartupWeekend concept, started in Boulder Colorado this past June. In the Birmingham model, three teams are selected to present on Sunday evening of the “Business Dev” weekend. All developers watch a webcast of the presentations and then vote on which project to implement the following weekend... majority wins. The winning business team uses the week to further tweak their product spec in time for the Implementation Weekend.
