Last week, 13 entrepreneurs, representing 11 businesses, became CO.STARTERS alumni! Congratulations!!
They join more than 100 previous graduates who, like them, endured months of meetings, mentoring, and market validation. Small businesses are the backbone of a strong economy and these recent graduates help form the foundation of a thriving and inclusive Birmingham. CO.STARTERS is an initiative of Create Birmingham on which we are proud to partner. Thanks to this cohort’s facilitator, Mickey Millsap, to the numerous guest speakers, and to the community for supporting the work of these bold individuals and their businesses!
