Did you know that Birmingham's cost of living is lower than the national average? Birmingham's cost of living is 94.3% of the national average (100%), and several points lower than other Southern metros like Nashville, Charleston, Asheville and Atlanta.

One of the things that attracts companies to Birmingham is the affordable cost of living. As we continue to grow and create jobs, it's important to make sure that Birmingham also remains an affordable place to live and work.

Hey Birmingham Business owners! My company gener8tor, a national ranked startup/small business accelerator, recently parntered with Bronze Valley to launch the Bronze Valley accelerator! https://alabamanewscenter.com/2020/07/16/bronze-valley-and-gener8tor-bringing-accelerator-to-alabama/ We are currently recruiting for the first group of companies to go through the program! Would love to chat with any and all of you! Please reach out directly or sign up for office hours here:https://www.bronzevalleyaccelerator.com/
I appreciate how active and resourceful this page is for business owners! In these unusual days, it’s a great way to help take things on a little at a time. I, personally, have been doing what I can to stay positive and find joy where I can. A few days ago, I saw a trailer for a funny movie called Chief Zabu, and it seems like a great film. It’s about a New York real estate developer who’s convinced that he can achieve his American Dream by developing a newly-independent Polynesian nation, for profit of course. It has tremendous reviews so far, so I’m excited to watch it when it hits major streaming services on Aug. 7th. It will be a nice way to take a break, so let me know if you plan on seeing it! I’d love to hear your thoughts!

March 3rd Education Vote These businesses are all in support of Amendment One for education in Alabama. They understand that one of the first things businesses who are interested in relocating here look at are the NAEP scores. AL is 50th in Reading and 52nd in Math. This is our chance to get rid of career politicians on our state school board and replace them with Senate-vetted educators who have term limits. Please Vote YES on Amendment One for our children's future.
