Silicon Valley has inspired a number of tech hubs across the globe. You’ve got Silicon Alley (New York), Silicon Hills (Texas) and closer to home Silicon Roundabout and Silicon Fen. And now joining them: Silicon Canal. This meetup is a very informal social meetup, just about getting a load of like-minded people involved with tech startups/digital stuff in Birmingham together. No agenda, just a good time & the chance to catch up with friends/colleagues/some new faces. We meet on the first Thursday of the month from 6pm.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
