About this Event
Birmingham Tech Week Hack Lab –
Birmingham Tech Week was set up to create a more connected tech scene through a series of events across the city. Alt Labs is an innovation agency who’ve run several accelerators in Birmingham and we’ve seen a number of opportunities to strengthen the community such as:
- More support from big businesses
- Better resource sharing between groups and events
We’re sure there are loads more opportunities and the best people to find them are the members of the ecosystem itself.
So, we designed the Birmingham Tech Week Hack Lab, a workshop that asks the community to reveal the challenges facing the ecosystem and find the resources it needs to strengthen it.
This is not a traditional hack event, this is a hack of your city and community.
What to expect
Participate in an ecosystem mapping workshop which will:
- Reveal what the tech scene needs to make it more connected
- Reveal the resources needed and who could provide them
- Build a blueprint for how the ecosystem should work
- Pizza and drinks to fuel your minds
Who should come
- Businesses who want to support the tech scene
- Organisers of events, meet-ups and work groups
- Start-ups, scale-ups and innovators
- Devs, techies and data scientists
- UX, UI, creatives and designers
Why you should come
- Be involved in fixing the problems – so many people complain about their co-working space or lack of opportunity, we’re tech people, we fix problems, so let’s fix them.
- Find opportunities for your business or career – conversation creates opportunities
- Build a blueprint for the community that you want – we can take this to big businesses or government to help get the things that you need to strengthen your ecosystem.
So come along to the workshop and help us to Hack Birmingham Tech Week.
