Enterprise Nation confirmed as an Official Sponsor of Coffee Birmingham

We are delighted to confirm Enterprise Nation as an official sponsor of Coffee Birmingham.

Enterprise Nation helps people to start and grow their businesses by putting them in touch with other business owners – providing access to the best tools and resources, and by sharing their own knowledge online through their blog, guides and twitter chats online, their books and at live events.

 

 

 

 

Coffee Birmingham founder Tim Wilson is a big advocate of Enterprise Nation and how it supports small businesses. “What EN does completely complements Coffee Birmingham’s aim to build Birmingham’s independent business community and to give small independent businesses opportunities to showcase what they do.”

As San Sharma, Community Manager at Enterprise Nation says, “Enterprise Nation is supporting #SuperJelly and Coffee Birmingham as a fan of both coffee and coworking. EN actually started life in the West Midlands, and we hope to make new friends through this fun initiative.”

With the #Superjelly event in particular, the opportunity for individuals and businesses to chat, exchange ideas and work together is of particular excitement to EN. As San states, “Jelly is a great excuse for hardworking home-grown business owners to get out of the house and work with new people. We’re really happy to be involved.”

Coffee Birmingham working with the Coffee Club Collective

We are delighted to confirm the Coffee Club Collective as a supporter and will be working with them throughout September.

The story of the Coffee Club Collective is simple: a group of young and ambitious artists decided to meet up regularly at Urban Coffee Company one afternoon a week and create together! What a great advert to demonstrate how coffee shops are natural hives of community and creative activities.

Tris Holliday, one of the artists from the Coffee Club Collective, takes up the story, “The independent coffee houses of Birmingham have been a second home for all of Coffee Club.” He goes to onto say, “in them, many prints and ideas have been created, and countless meetings have been had. So it feels very fitting that we should support them, as with out good coffee in Birmingham, there would be no Coffee Club.”

So, loving this natural association between the indie coffee shops and creativity, Coffee Birmingham are all too delighted to be working with the Coffee Club Collective.

With this in mind, in September we will be running a few very special events with the Collective in the lead up to and on the 29th September itself.

Watch this space for more news imminently.

The Spirit of Birmingham Walking Tour, September 29th 2012

On Coffee Birmingham day (September 29th 2012), Midlands Discovery Tours in association with Coffee Birmingham will present  The Spirit of Birmingham.

“Join an expert local Blue Badge tourist guide for a very special walking tour of Birmingham.

The tour is a celebration of Birmingham as a city of creativity, innovation and enterprise, from its earliest days to modern times.

As we walk the streets of the modern city centre and Jewellery Quarter, you will discover how Birmingham has always been a place that has welcomed and encouraged original thinking, and hear stories of some of the men and women who took advantage of that spirit.  Find out how local people’s ideas shaped the world around them, and how independent Birmingham businesses became household names.

But as tour guide Ian Braisby will introduce, it’s not just about the past – we will also explore modern Birmingham’s thriving independent scene and some of the key locations and areas where it can be found.

Covering everything from music, art and literature to industry and, of course, food and drink, this very special tour is an entertaining and informative look at a city that has always lived up to its motto “Forward”.

These events are very popular and offered on a first-come first-served basis so book your place early.

Times and booking details coming soon, but for more information, please contact Midlands Discovery Tours by calling Ian Braisby on:
