WAVTEQ Europe FDI success case study Back to successes
Uberâ€™s investment in Birmingham followed 3 fairly rapid stages of activity that WAVTEQâ€™s US team pursued via Uber's San Francisco HQ and then Uberâ€™s London UK HQ
WAVTEQ worked closely with client to secure project using social media to reach out to Uber's SVP for EMEA. This was followed-up with calls and a meeting with the General Manager for UK, Ireland & Nordics.
We promoted the advantages of Birmingham to Uber focusing on growth of the city and its large, young population as well as openness to innovative companies and technologies.
WAVTEQ identified a need for further expansion in the UK and assisted Uber, coordinating with our client Business Birmingham, in identifying potential office space in Birmingham for a new 2,000 sq ft office to house a 15 person office in Birmingham.
