Brum and Bio-tech


(Andy Wootton) #1

Via a slightly unconventional tribal gathering at the weekend, I met my daughter’s future brother-in-law’s partner, a Birmingham Uni graduate who’s job title is ‘Scientist’. She said she’s an electro-chemist. She works for a London bio-tech startup linking sensors to software via mobile technology. We lost one and she misses Birmingham.

Do we have any Midland bio-tech? We have a huge hospital in town; they must have software people. Are there any we’re in touch with? Might there be a separate bio-tech scene with a few lonely software people in? We should network those peeps in.
