About Business Birmingham

We are Business Birmingham. The city’s official inward investment programme.

From large-scale relocation projects for international and UK companies to raising the city’s status as a key business destination, Business Birmingham is here to support and enable you. Our services are driven entirely by your needs and are independent and free of charge.

We’re attracting international SMEs

Home to world-class company headquarters, innovative centres of excellence and one of the youngest populations in Europe, Greater Birmingham is a thriving, business-focused region.

Centrally located in the UK, and with a highly skilled talent pool, the region provides the scale and size to service the largest of business functions. This is reflected by the HS2 and HSBC decisions to locate substantial operations here.

Business Birmingham acts as a single point of contact for potential inward investors and delivers a comprehensive support package. This includes bringing together a project team of relevant organisations, such as property agents, recruitment consultants, public agencies, and universities.

European Regional Development Fund

European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) is a fund allocated by the European Union which aims to strengthen economic and social cohesion in the EU by correcting imbalances between its regions. Business Birmingham has been awarded a contract to deliver a programme addressing one of the key priority areas – support for foreign owned small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) expanding to the Greater Birmingham area.

Business Birmingham acts as a single point of contact for clients, bringing together a project team from relevant organisations across the city such as property agents, recruitment consultants, public agencies and universities to deliver a comprehensive package of support. The European Regional Development Fund, through its Investing in Greater Birmingham project, will support the above services free of charge to companies eligible for the support as outlined by ERDF.
