LET'S GROW YOUR BUSINESS.
Small businesses are essential to creating vibrant, authentic places. REV helps entrepreneurs start, grow and sustain their businesses, and we focus especially on those with the goal to open brick-and-mortar locations.
REV’s Business Growth team offers workshops, one-on-one business consulting, business-proving opportunities and real estate assistance to help you, regardless of where you are on your journey. We also closely collaborate with more than 20 organizations that have even more expertise and resources to help Birmingham’s small businesses thrive.
If you’ve been following REV for a while, you probably remember The Big Pitch Competitions we used to hold back in the day. The Big Pitch presented by PNC was essentially our own little version of Shark Tank. And a lot of your favorite local businesses that participated in this competition now have active retail storefronts that you can go check out. Let’s start with some of our finalists that are based in the City of Birmingham and see what they’ve been up to!
We’re so excited to welcome yet another new business to the Woodlawn Community! Thrive Wellness Lounge is a plant-based health and wellness store in the heart of Woodlawn owned by Tish Fletcher (a veteran Woodlawn Street Market vendor – whoop whoop)! You can swing by and check out Woodlawn’s newest addition on Tuesday – Saturday from 11:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. It’s always a good time to support a female, black-owned local business! We talked to Tish a little bit more about her journey to opening her very own brick and mortar store. Keep reading to learn more!
