CONNECTING ENTREPRENEURS AND CHANGE MAKERS ACROSS THE REGION

Our Story


Birmingham Enterprise Community was born out of a meeting held between a small group of students and staff members from several Birmingham universities on a hot April afternoon in a small classroom at Newman University. After a discussion about potentially holding a couple of joint events between university societies it soon became clear that a permanent way of working in collaboration was needed – BEC was born. 

BEC is a social enterprise led by student and graduate entrepreneurs with the goal of building a collaborative and supportive entrepreneurial ecosystem that is able to cater for the needs of those within it. By working with those in the community and the wider West Midlands community we are able to create new opportunities and open resources to those who wish to use them to create positive change through enterprise and entrepreneurial activities.
