About Birmingham Enterprise Community

Birmingham Enterprise Community CIC (BEC) is a community of emerging entrepreneurs and changemakers from across the Midlands that aims to make the region one of the best locations in the world to set up and run a business. Formed in 2018 after a group of enterprising students from all 5 Birmingham Universities came together to discuss ways of uniting their respective student communities, BEC looks to create opportunities for individuals to develop as entrepreneurs, work on their ideas, expand their networks, collaborate with others and turn the ideas that they have for a startup or to make an impact into a reality. This starts with a number of grassroots initiatives designed to drive aspiration from inspiration including talks, events, experiences and development opportunities. Additionally, BEC has worked with its partners on addressing barriers to entrepreneurship by understanding the needs of its community to find those factors that affect accessibility to engaging in entrepreneurial activity and then working with thought-leaders, institutions and members of the community to find actionable solutions that open doors and create opportunities that are open to all.

BEC has also launched an accelerator programme, FORWARD, which is a 6-month comprehensive package of support for startups to enable growth and support the transition towards scaleup. FORWARD is sector-agnostic programme with many of the startups being at a pre-revenue and pre-funding phase, either working on or having recently released an MVP. Support on BEC programmes include elements such as:
  • A structured programme of weekly masterclasses
  • Weekly one-to-one coaching
  • Access to a mentor pool of 14+ mentors with combined experience of 280+ years
  • 24/7 free access to Alpha Works co-working space in Birmingham city centre
  • Networking and promotional opportunities
  • Access to a package of virtual resources
  • Assistance with access to talent
  • Funding opportunities including a post-programme Demo Day
