Samford University not only produces great pharmacists, nurses, business men and women, and some of the most educated students around, but also top notch athletes. Although playing in the Southern Conference does not always get you noticed, recently the Bulldogs have paved way for the dreams of one student to come true on the national level.
“In Birmingham, as a community, to grow the tech community, what local entities need to be involved, what can we do to be successful?”
-Kevin McLendon, CEO, Telegraph
We all know what that means! It’s yet another Friday!
When it’s Friday, Birminghamians…
I talk a lot about Birmingham’s innovation and enthusiasm for the startup community. Reason being, my experience with TechBirmingham and Innovation Depot. The things going on in the Southeast’s Silicon Valley are outstanding and sure to turn heads in other cities. The fire is in the Depot, and TechBirmingham is fueling it that much more.
What Unifies a Community?
There are many aspects involved when supporting something. Is it politics, or sports, or religious beliefs? Whatever “it” may be, supporting each other, as a community, ought to be a top priority.
The summer is always busy for Birmingham. Music festivals, tech conferences, hanging out in local breweries, shopping in Pepper Place’s multiple vendors. There is so much going on, you would think the city never sleeps. Well in fact, it does sleep, but while awake, its creating innovation like the city has never seen before. There ought to be a time to show case the opportunities Birmingham has and the magic it can produce for business to the millennial looking to move south.
