The WM Accelerator program is a dynamic and multifaceted initiative focused on driving digital innovation in three key areas. Firstly, we will create digital twin use cases, offering a virtual representation of the city for improved planning and decision-making. Secondly, we will foster innovation through challenges, projects, and procurement processes, specifically targeting the digital transformation of East Birmingham. Lastly, we are committed to supporting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) through tailored training programs. Together, these initiatives will accelerate the growth of Birmingham’s digital ecosystem, unleashing its full potential and positioning it as a leading hub for innovation, entrepreneurship, and technological excellence.
