Initiatives & Events
REV proves markets where others may not believe they exist. Events are a powerful tool to show the potential of places, programs and businesses. REV’s register of initiatives and events changes as the city changes. Here’s what we’re doing now:
BUSINESS GROWTH WORKSHOPS
Small businesses are essential to vibrant commercial districts. Whether you have an idea you’ve not yet executed or a business that’s ready to grow, the REV Business Growth Team offers programming to meet the needs of businesses in all stages.
EPIC CITY RUSH

Converted in 2013 from vacant warehouse to offices rich in industrial vibe, SocialVenture is a co-working space, meeting space and change-making space in the heart of Woodlawn.
