BIZ 1.0 is on the move! Councilor Steven Hoyt invites you to join Corey Bishop at Refresh Clothing for a special edition of REV Birmingham’s BIZ 1.0 workshop.
Corey Bishop, owner of Refresh Clothing, will cofacilitate BIZ 1.0 on Friday, April 20 from 8 a.m. to noon at his store in Five Points West with help from REV’s Chief Officer of Strategy Atticus Rominger.
Corey went through the business essentials workshop himself in January and is currently finishing the 10-week CO.STARTERS program, a deeper dive into startup fundamentals led by Create Birmingham.
“I knew BIZ 1.0 could change my whole outlook on business, and it has,” said Bishop. “Learning the things in the workshops has been key to help pave the way for my business’ future.”
The Five Points West business community is positioned for exciting growth around the Birmingham Crossplex, and Corey will lead April BIZ 1.0 attendees through anticipating the needs of visitors to the area and using this opportunity to grow their businesses.
This discussion-style workshop allows merchants to learn from one another and mentor emerging entrepreneurs who can learn from their experience as business owners.
BIZ 1.0 also provides another way for REV to support merchants and aspiring entrepreneurs in urban commercial districts to start a new business or sustain their existing business by continuing to learn new business skills or refresh their entrepreneurial spirit.
Register for the April 20 workshop here. Refresh Clothing is situated between Hibbett Sports and Shoe Time in the Five Points West Shopping Center (2145 Bessemer Road).
When Karen Gathany began her search for a brick-and-mortar space, she wasn’t quite sure where she’d end up. But she fell in love with a charming historic storefront, complete with hardwood floors and an exposed brick wall, on 1st Avenue North in Woodlawn.
To say that Domestique Coffee’s Michael Pocus knows a thing or two about a good cup of coffee is an understatement.
As one of the original vendors of the Woodlawn Street Market, Nelesha Dale has a big heart for community, family, and entrepreneurs. REV met with her to find out what’s next for her business and how she got to where she is today.
