Silicon Canal is a not for profit organisation run by volunteers and as such relies on the generosity of the community and corporate sponsors to fund its activity each year. We operate an open book policy on our costs so you can see what our annual running costs are.

In exchange for sponsorship we will profile your company and its services to our members. Silicon Canal is in a unique position in the Greater Birmingham tech ecosystem as we are the community and therefore our trust and reach is unmatched.

We currently have the following reach:

  • 1300 email subscribers
  • 3000 Twitter followers
  • 1500 Unique web visitor per month
  • 400 Facebook likes
  • 200 LinkedIn group members
  • 200 Ambassadors

This reach grows day by day and is made up of freelancers, startups, digital agencies, larger tech companies and individuals who work in tech in non tech companies.
