What makes Birmingham a great place to do business? There are no better people to ask than founders and team members of Birmingham Bound partner companies. Each of these companies have either relocated their headquarters or opened a satellite office in Birmingham after we introduced them to key leaders in Birmingham’s tech and entrepreneurial community and showed them the high quality of living and doing business in our city. 

Here are what 4 members of these companies had to say:

Jason Gwizdala, Head of Product and Co-Founder of Immediate: 

“Birmingham continues to show that it has a collaborative and supportive culture. We continue to find top talent in the area and it has been great to have such a collaborative University system close by. Even attending periodic events in the community have led to introductions for new customers or services to help our company scale.”

Brit Hudgins, Director of Customer Support at Suzy

“The talent and sales opportunities in Birmingham have been fantastic. I have great team members on our customer support team and they came right out of Birmingham.  The talent is here, in addition to opportunity for the company. Many other local companies want to use our product once they start to hear about us, so we’re able to grow as a company in Birmingham in multiple ways.”

JJ Imbeaux, Director of Sales at LeaseQuery:

“There is so much opportunity for growth. We believe Birmingham has a lot of phenomenal things ahead of it and we are excited to be a part of the early days. We believe in the vision of Mayor Randall Woodfin and Josh Carpenter for the city, and are thrilled to be a part of it early to watch it grow. We believe Birmingham has the necessary ingredients to be one of the next great tech hubs in the U.S. and are excited to be meaningful contributors to the ecosystem.”

Scott Brown, Chief Technology Officer at Integrate

“The ease of doing business in Birmingham made opening an engineering office a sensible decision. The low barrier to entry is what initially attracted Integrate and I’m happy to say we’re thriving in the Birmingham ecosystem. What’s striking is the educated tech savvy workforce coupled with a culture of passion and perseverance.”
