midlands is great
WeiPoint promotes the Midlands through international engagement, talent exchange and industry dialogue. We work with businesses, universities and communities to adopt new technologies, improve their operational models, build on historical cultural heritage, and ensure their future prosperity.
Who we are?
Established in Birmingham, the most diversified and entrepreneurial city in the UK, Weipoint’s mission is to advocate for inclusion and innovation within the city-region. We help local citizens of all backgrounds build their network and connect across the region, and aim to promote the Midlands on an international scale. Our team is dedicated to showcasing the brightest and best that the region has to offer, in an accessible format that everyone can take advantage of.
What we do?
We are building a digital platform which curates and highlights local events, presented in the form of a centrally managed calendar, in order to challenge the stereotype that Birmingham is neither a fun place to visit nor a great place to live.
It offers many types of events in this region, enabling people to explore a wide range of interests. We also place particular focus on helping local businesses and higher education institutes access the global network, exponentially expanding their potential reach and ability to make a positive impact on more lives.
How do we deliver?
We are working both digitally and conventionally to deliver our value and service. We build a online community through a calendar which motivates people to explore the city better and deeper. We also work with many local and global businesses to explore the potential local opportunities through this online community. We are still growing and evolving. We will explore ways of promoting this regions through our collective efforts. We have cooperated and incubated other firms to deliver the same goals. Looking forward to hearing more advice and attracting new talents in our team.
The Ambassador Programme is the online community that we are building for locals and foreigners. It aims to outline the best things to do in this region with personalized preferences, encouraging ambassadors to explore and promote the rich variety of experiences Birmingham has to offer.
The Envoy and the Catapult Service are being developed separately as individual brands to build connections between local businesses or research institutions and international organizations. Those connections were driven by the ambassadors who love this place as well as of global vision and capacity.
