As the 95th tech start-up enrols at Innovation Birmingham’s Entrepreneurs for the Future centre, a new post has been created to assist with the increased number of young companies going through the incubation process. Now into its fifth year of operation, Entrepreneurs for the Future’s start-ups have secured over £3.5 million of investment during initial funding rounds.
The latest four new tech ventures to be accepted onto the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) supported programme are: AsDesigned Games, Incus Games, Trebuchet Games, and Roomie. The latter of these is an app to enable spare room hunters to assess potential housemates, described as a cross between well-known online portals AirBNB, GumTree and Tinder.
The new recruit is Naomi Watts, who has joined the Entrepreneurs for the Future team as a Programme Assistant.
