Our Smart Brum

We wanted to create a meetup group that supported the future plans and goals of our city, our SMART CITY.

But we didn’t want to create yet another meetup, we want to make a difference to our futures by not only inviting the most innovative tech professionals and businesses in the sectors but by empowering our future next-gen, with similar interests and visions and to give them a platform to voice their ambitions, opinions and showcase their potential.

We are creating Birmingham’s first Green and Renewable Energy, Sustainability and IOT Tech MeetUp.

We appreciate that there are overlaps of many technologies and therefore we want to open this to everyone in our tech eco-system that wants to join in this extremely important conversation to make our city one of the first Smart Cities in the country. There is an urgent need in all these sectors for tech innovation, without this we cannot sustain our plans to be a smart city before 2030.

Who we want to be involved:

If you have an interest or are currently part of an initiative or tech solution within the following:

-        Sustainability
-        Green or Renewable Energy
-        Net Zero
-        Smart Cities
-        IOT
-        Blockchain
-        5G

You can be one of the below:

·        Tech Companies
·        Tech/Non-Tech professionals
·        A Student or Any Young Person!
·        Entrepreneurs – current and future

Whatever your background, your achievements, your passions and even future plans to run the next future tech business, we want you to be part of the conversation.

Why Our Next-Generation Are So Important To Sustainability and Net Zero?

We Get It!
You want to empower our future next-generation, by giving you a platform to have your say and to have an opportunity to be part of the conversations, grow your connections within the Tech and Smart city eco-systems, but more importantly, feel like you are part of the community.

Next phase:
We are looking for founding members to help be on the steering group behind this important tech meetup and assembly group.

The Inspire Series

When I created CX Squared, the goal was always to be community focused, with a clear emphasis on giving young people insights and an opportunity to seek a career in tech, after all the phrase “ingrained in me from an early age” came from somewhere! 

With this in mind, this year, we made the decision to not re-invent the wheel and have now partnered our “Inspire the Next-Gen Series” with the Inspire Series created by the team at Birmingham Tech. 

"Dan and the team at CX Squared have been a driving force in helping young people understand the benefits of a career in technology. They have worked tirelessly to inspire lots of young people across the West Midlands, and that's why we are delighted to be partnering with them on the Inspire Series. The partnership will enable us to reach even more young people and encourage more of them to embark on exciting careers in tech."

Yiannis Maos, CEO of Birmingham Tech.

Our events are bespoke to all educational institutions and all young people around the region.

Diversity in Tech Brum

Diversity in Tech Brum - Powered by Wondr

Diversity in Tech Brum was created as a movement and initiative to ensure more equality and inclusion for people coming from diverse and under-represented areas of the city and region. 

The movement requires allies, regardless of your colour, privilege or background and our drive is aimed at promoting a level playing field, promoting anti-racism and more importantly making Digital more INCLUSIVE, within Birmingham and the West Midlands.

The team at Wondr are our partners on this mission, and have created an online community to discuss the topics around this important movement. 

WONDR is a social-learning network connecting people interested in social impact or environmental topics. Different from Linkedin and Facebook where you are connected by profession or friends; WONDR connects you with like-minded people interested in Environment or Social Impact topics.

Join the Diversity in Tech Brum community by clicking the button below and lets start a healthy conversation to promote inclusion in the region. WONDR has an app which we would highly recommend downloading from Android or iOS app stores after you have signed up from the link.
