It’s no secret that Silicon Valley has been looking east, with a number of entrepreneurs shying away from the high rents and salaries involved in working in the Bay Area. The quality of life might be great in the bay, but home ownership is a struggle, even for those earning six figures; the median house price recently hit $1.2 million. In recent years, new tech hubs have sprouted up across America, including Austin, Seattle, and Boulder. Even these are becoming increasingly pricey. That’s where Birmingham, Alabama’s largest city, sees an opportunity.


In recent years its been home for a number of large companies; Icebox cold brew coffee which sold to Royal Cup in 2017, and same day delivery service Shipt, bought for $550 million by Target last year. It’s also fertile ground for new talent and allows venture capitalists early access to burgeoning startups. For example, Alabama-based Tennibot, a robotic tennis ball collector, won a CES 2018 Innovation Award earlier this year. And its home for Regions Financial Corporation bank (ranked 312 on the Fortune 500 list) and Books-A-Million.
