10: Birmingham Enterprise Community on building communities and creating connection

Daniel Evans and Omran Aqbal from Birmingham Enterprise Community talk about how technology can connect young entrepreneurs with support for starting and scaling up a business. They explain how every business is both technology-driven and people-driven. They are interested in how we use technology to solve social problems and share their thoughts on how technology can bring people together with shared values and ideas so we can build global communities with a greater understanding of difference.

I’m struck by Daniel and Omran’s desire to use technology in a way that enhances the lives of human beings and to fix global social issues. The future of humanity and technology comes down to how we use it consciously and ethically. It’s on all of us to consider how we do that, both as consumers and in business. I share Daniel’s final words that technology has made things faster and easier. Now it’s time to make sure we use it to relate to each other better.

How can you use technology better to relate to others?
