REV has worked with more than 1,900 small businesses in the Birmingham community over the past five years, and we have no intention of slowing down. From Eugene’s Hot Chicken to Ghost Train Brewing to Laced Up Boutique to the freshly-rebranded 3rd Street Market, REV supports business growth with a number of initiatives designed to help entrepreneurs create, test and refine their business concepts.

  • BIZ 1.0: This half-day workshop is designed for starters with a great idea who don’t know where to go next.

  • CO.STARTERS: Create Birmingham’s 10-week program takes entrepreneurs on a deeper dive into their business plan. REV is proud to partner with Create to bring this program to Birmingham.

  • THE BIG PITCH: Each year since 2014, 10 startup contestants compete before a live audience and panel of judges, “Shark Tank-style,” for a chance to win prizes including cash, professional services and a chance at an investment in one or more companies. (Read more below!)

  • REVeal Kitchen: First opened in early 2017, our Pizitz Food Hall stall serves as a launchpad for startup restaurants to grow their business in a short-term lease while receiving technical assistance from REV.

  • Woodlawn Street Market: Developed in 2014, Woodlawn Street Market is an urban marketplace that provides a revenue-generating opportunity and safe environment for local entrepreneurs to test and tweak their products.

  • The Urban Food Project: Begun in 2012, the Urban Food Project delivers quality local produce to Birmingham restaurants and corner stores located in food deserts and offers technical assistance to its clients.

  • Business & Real Estate Assistance: REV also offers consulting services to its clients, including assistance ranging from business planning to marketing brainstorms as well as help finding the right physical space for their business and jumping over the development hurdles.

We look forward to many more years of working with Birmingham businesses to make Birmingham an even more vibrant city! Check out #BHMflashback on FacebookTwitter and Instagram to see more REV client spotlights from the past five years.
