COVID-19 called on all of us to pivot, in both big and small ways. That also applies to business owners, whether it’s a two-person retail team or a multimillion-dollar corporation. Entrepreneurs have been called on to rethink business models, how to connect with customers and distribute products during unprecedented times.
That’s where innovation comes in. REV’s Taylor Clark Jacobson and Reginald Smith of Sabre Finance kicked off Small Business Week 2020 by showing small business owners a fresh perspective on innovation that will take them beyond COVID-19. Watch video of their workshop above.
Small Business Week 2020 is chock full of useful information for entrepreneurs, the fabric of Birmingham. All events are free, but registration is encouraged.
We’ve talked about sports, but downtown has so much more to offer! Downtown Birmingham has so many experiences in store for you, which can also turn into life-long memories. And lucky for you, we’ve created a tool to make all that exploring so much easier!
Ever host an event where you ordered way too much food and end up with more leftovers than you can even fathom? We’ve been there too – until we learned about Magic City Harvest! Magic City Harvest is an organization working towards ending food waste & hunger in the Magic City. They acquire perishable food from schools, wholesale food distributors, restaurants, caterers, churches, event venues and grocery stores to donate to 30 community partners on the frontlines feeding the city’s hungry neighbors.
We are approaching the finish line for the 20th Street Refresh, which calls for a celebration – and you’re invited! The City Center Business Improvement District (BID), funded by downtown property owners, is partnering with the City of Birmingham and REV Birmingham to celebrate a refreshed Birmingham Green. Come join the party on May 20th from 4 to 8 p.m (with a special celebration happening at 6 p.m.)!
