CrowdProperty is delighted to be featured in the March issue of London Tech Week's report on the 12 Clusters of Tech.
Sponsored by Barclays, London Tech Week and the UK Tech Cluster Group explores each ecosystem and tech trend in every region of the UK with this month looking at the companies and sectors in the West Midlands.
Richard Green, Relationship Director at Barclays said: _"The Midlands technology scene is a vibrant one at grass roots level we progressive Universities such as Aston/ Keele and Loughborough to name but a few with active and productive science parks. There are then Midland’s based funds such as Mercia Asset Management set up to support these businesses through their early stages of growth alongside a well informed professional community to support all of their needs. The geographic spread of the technology businesses is an even one with no real centre but each major city in both the East and West Midlands has a growing number of technology companies."_
CrowdProperty CEO Michael Bristow commented: _"At the heart of the achievements to date is a passionate team of 41 based in Birmingham with a great culture and a shared cause to solve pains on both sides of the CrowdProperty marketplace. We believe that our West Midlands base gives us significant advantage - in particular through access to a great talent pool and tech sector. This is just the start of realising our potential and we’re on a trajectory to continue growing as rapidly as we have done, underpinned by a highly scalable, in-house built, proprietary technology platform, scalable capital sources and deep expertise in exactly the asset class being lent against, funding hundreds of millions of pounds each year.” _
