"I'm immediately invested in people's success. Everything that I already am has helped me help others. At Create Birmingham, it's just been improved because now I feel like I know more people to connect you to."
"I strive to leave something better than I found it. And if I can do that in any small way, here in Birmingham, that’ll be an accomplishment."
"Looking back, it’s easier to see the moments that were crystallizing for me.... One friend asked me what I was going to do, and I said, 'I don’t know, but I know I want to make a difference.'"
"CO.STARTERS helped me understand my value and figure out how to grow... I think financial success and emotional fulfillment are often sold as being mutually exclusive, but we get to choose our realities, and having both is possible."
We are committed to emboldening our city’s entrepreneurial spirits, supporting the invaluable work of our nonprofit sector, amplifying Birmingham’s creative voices, and providing opportunities for our constituents.
