James Childs Quoted in Birmingham Business Journal Regarding the Growth Potential of Birmingham’s Technology Sector

James Childs was recently quoted in a Birmingham Business Journal article entitled “Three key takeaways from Innovation Week Birmingham” which explores the growth potential of the city’s emerging technology industry and what business leaders need to do in order to succeed in the Magic City.

Childs leads a cross-disciplinary team of attorneys focused on representing the full spectrum of participants in the entrepreneurial ecosystem, including investors and healthcare IT, medical device, life science, digital media, cyber security, SaaS and software, cleantech, and other high-growth companies. “Birmingham tends to foster a small-company mentality,” he said. “I think many companies here don’t realize or fully understand the amount of work involved to be successful on this certain scale. You shouldn’t walk through the Innovation Depot and hear crickets at 5:30 p.m.”
