Supporting Entrepreneurs & Change Makers Across The Globe

Our Story

BEC (Birmingham Enterprise Community) is an award-winning organisation that supports a global community of entrepreneurs and businesses through a range of services, programmes and initiatives that support these entrepreneurs from concept/idea phase through to creating a startup all the way through to supporting high-growth scaleups.

We’re successful entrepreneurs using our experience to help new entrepreneurs in the West Midlands and around the world to leap further and faster from thinking big to doing big, by providing training in everything from raising finance to building relationships to initiating sustainability.


BEC Bigger Leaps, Fewer Steps

Our Values

The work of Birmingham Enterprise Community is designed and delivered around four key community values. These values influence both how we work as an organisation and how we work with the entrepreneurs in our communities:

Entrepreneurship is for everyone

Anyone from anywhere could be an entrepreneur and should have access to engaging in entrepreneurial activities

Nothing is impossible

No idea is too big or ambitious. We work to find solutions and remove barriers rather than focusing on things being ‘too difficult’.

Collaboration NOT Competition

We work in collaboration with the whole ecosystem and encourage our entrepreneurs to work together.

Learning is for life

Learning is a continuous process that never ends. Whether just starting out or a veteran entrepreneur, there are always new things to learn and new ways to see the world.

Our Impact

BEC was created as a social enterprise which means it is an organisation established to generate social impact. The social impact BEC exists to create is to empower emerging entrepreneurs to help them to build exciting and innovative businesses that are able to solve the problems of the world.

Reimagine Entrepreneurship

BEC (Birmingham Enterprise Community) is a new breed of entrepreneurial community. One which looks to work alongside individuals, other organisations and institutions towards common goals rather than individual pursuits. We are taking the Midlands Startup ecosystem to the next level to help not only start businesses but to get them scaling up too.

Creating a community where collaboration births benefit for all.
