Why invest in Birmingham?

Birmingham, the UK’s second city is the urban heart of the West Midlands. It offers unparalleled connectivity, cultural diversity and economic buzz.

The Big City Plan has transformed the city centre, attracting a new mix of business services, tech, creative industries and life sciences, with a specialised focus on advanced manufacturing and green industry.

The city of a thousand trades, as Birmingham was once known, is now the city of a thousand start-ups, 8,000 acres of green space, one hundred languages, 90,000 university students and leading restaurants serving 27 different national cuisines.

Birmingham’s population is also one of the youngest in Europe and is growing fast and expected to reach 1.25 million over the next 20 years.

This is a golden decade for Birmingham, when the 2022 Commonwealth Games, urban regeneration programmes and the arrival of HS2 will transform the city, its public profile, its connectivity, and its offer to businesses and residents, placing Birmingham at the heart of the West Midlands’ economic revival.
