Fifteen Birmingham organizations focused on small business support have formed Rebound Bham, a collaborative effort that aims to help local business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs weather the storm of COVID-19.
Rebound Bham will use virtual workshops, social media events, coaching sessions and resources, and experts will help small business owners achieve skill set milestones to retain, sustain and expand their business through 2020.
