Verizon is proud to support REV Birmingham, the City Center, and Birmingham’s neighborhood commercial centers.  Now, we are pleased to offer even more tools to help local downtown businesses scale and thrive.

There’s no secret that over the past few years, the coronavirus pandemic has been extremely hard for small businesses, pushing many to adapt and reinvent themselves digitally in order to survive.

At Verizon, we believe we have a collective responsibility to help ensure that no small business is left behind, especially small businesses led by women and minorities who have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.

Through Citizen Verizon, Verizon’s responsible business plan, Verizon announced a $3 billion commitment to moving the world forward by expanding digital access and resources. As part of Citizen Verizon, we have a goal to help 1 million small businesses get digital skills training by 2030.

As part of this commitment, Verizon is launching Verizon Small Business Digital Ready, a free online curriculum that gives small business owners the tools to optimize their digital presence and succeed in today’s digital economy. The world is going digital. Customers across industries are turning to the online marketplace to shop, browse, and do business. Adapting to this new landscape is essential to the future success of small businesses.

Through Verizon Small Business Digital Ready, businesses will receive:

● Personalized learning plans that cover financing, marketing, and operations
● Coaching from business experts across legal, marketing, business planning and more.
● Peer networking to connect with other small businesses
● Other incentives such solutions, products and services

Verizon Small Business Digital Ready was developed in partnership with small business owners who understand what it takes to succeed in the digital economy. The curriculum is simple to use, with all the information available online in one place.
