The most populous city in the US state of Alabama, Birmingham was founded in 1871 by predominantly those of English ancestry. In the second half of the 20th Century, its economy spread out into banking, transportation, telecommunications, medical care, college education and insurance. It actually ranks as one of the largest banking hubs in the United States and is one of the most important business centers in the Southeast. Birmingham has a growing tech startup scene with plenty of talent spewing from its major colleges of medicine, optometry, dentistry, pharmacy, law, nursing, engineering and physical therapy. Coworking venues have sprung up in response for the need for somewhere for the locals to hang out in a collaborative and connected environment.
The youth of Birmingham are driving the tech scene that is seeing the likes of Google for Entrepreneurs visiting the city to provide coaches to help startup founders with investment pitchers. Plus there are other initiatives such as America Online getting behind the emerging innovation ecosystems across the whole of the United States. Coworking in Birmingham for many of its locals is the way forward to grab the opportunities that are being offered by outside influencers.
