WELCOME TO THE SMALL BIZ SUPPORT NETWORK

It takes a village to start, grow and sustain a vibrant small business community. Together our community is collaborating—with a sense of urgency and compassion—to address the needs of Birmingham’s entrepreneurs. 

WHO WE ARE

The Small Biz Support Network is a volunteer collective of small business experts and advocates donating their expertise to guide you in the moments you need it most. Curated by REV and comprised of our partners in the worlds of law, finance, accounting, marketing and more, this network is here to help you weather the storm.

HOW IT WORKS

Based on the needs you indicate when you sign up, we pair groups of 3-5 entrepreneurs with content experts for short virtual “pulse meetings.” These sessions are intended to help you overcome obstacles with free technical assistance from some of Birmingham’s brightest service providers.

WE'LL FIGURE THIS OUT TOGETHER
