BIRMINGHAM: Thousands expected to start a business in a day, StartUp 2017

Thousands of people, who want to become their own boss or brush-up of their business skills, are set to attend one of three nationwide start-up events on Saturday January 14.
StartUp 2017 Birmingham, in partnership with Birmingham City University, is the Midlands-based event run by small business support group Enterprise Nation.  It will deliver a big boost to ambitious would-be entrepreneurs in the city, at the same time as two other satellite events taking place in London’s Canary Wharf and in Bristol.
