Tech Wednesday is our monthly meet-up for the Technology and entrepreneur community within Birmingham.

Each month we also have ‘Show ‘n Tells’: a couple of tech start-ups/people with side projects from the region will be demoing their stuff to the group for feedback and discussion.  If you want to present, then get in touch!

We meet at 5.30 pm at Innovation Birmingham.  If you’re not sure where we are, then just ask at reception and a friendly face will point you in the right direction.  New faces always welcome.
