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).
This year’s Park(ing) Day event is an even more focused and ambitious design that builds off of the momentum created by last year’s installation. Here’s what you can expect.
It all started in 2005 when three urban designers went looking for “unscripted fragments” of space in San Francisco that could be used in a fun and engaging way.
Tim Hightower says that applying for Birmingham’s Shared Spaces permit and building out an outdoor seating area has allowed The Lumbar to double capacity for less than $1,000.
