Could Birmingham Become ‘Britain’s Berlin’ For Tech?

Rolling into Birmingham on a train from London you’ll see what looks like a couple of derelict car parks and the odd flash of graffiti on the side of some disused building.

On looks alone, it’s not hard to see how it gave birth to the bands Black Sabbath and Judas Priest.

But though the impression of a city that’s a little rough around the edges can work from some angles, the place has plenty to suggest it’s not quite ‘poor but sexy’ as Berlin has been described, especially when you realise the derelict building is earmarked with signage for development, and the carpark has the word “Temporary” on it.
