What’s pulling rank in the business world?


Call us the angel on your Christmas tree 

Because we’re on top. Birmingham was ranked #1 for the best mid-sized business climate by Business Facilities Magazine and we think that’s a full-sized amount of awesome. The report took a look at hot topics in economic development such as startup ecosystems, job growth and cost of living.

Bop It, Twist It, Pull It, Mix It 

We put innovation on our shopping list and Birmingham went to Costco and got a big variety pack of mixed-used projects. Similar to Queen, new developments want it all—buildings converted into a one-stop spot to live, work, shop and play are hotter than August temps. These projects are multiplying like gremlins across the city, including in Forest Park, Downtown and Lakeview. 

Monkey see, monkey do 

It’s an app eat app world out there and we’ll have to see if TikTok can renegade, renegade out of this one. On the heels of the proposed ban of TikTok, Snapchat announced it will begin testing a new feature that lets Snapchat users set their Snaps to music—hmm…sounds familiar. Don’t take the skill off your resume just yet, though. Birmingham companies (and residents) are seeing value in the app.

Live, laugh, local 

Have we made it clear how much we love small Birmingham business? Probably not with our thousands of guides, shout outs and overall obsession with the little guys that make Birmingham so big. It’s why Bham Now put together a database featuring over 700 small businesses and nonprofits. Sign up your local biz or nonprofit today so we can dote all over you too. 

Bring on the business events
