ChiBizHub August Update
Happy August from the ChiBizHub Team!
Hopefully you’ve caught a glance at our social and digital over the month, we’ve concentrated our efforts on spotlighting both Black businesses and resources for Black entrepreneurs across our media channels, in honor of Black Business Month (August).
In this spirit, we have put together six spotlight interviews with business owners and business resource providers on our hub, including:
- Muse Coffee Studio
- Nia Architects
- Atmos Coffee Shop
- 5 Loaves Eatery
- Chicago Urban League
- Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity’s Office of Minority Economic Empowerment
Finally, knowing how busy you are, we are shifting our newsletter to a new day/time and brand. Beginning this Saturday morning, you’ll find ChiBizBrew in your in-box. This is intended to be a quick read with links to resources, support, programs and events of value to our small business community. We are kicking off this new digital platform by giving away gift cards to independent coffee shops in our neighborhoods. We welcome your feedback on businesses to promote or news to feature in ChiBizBrew. You can sign up here.
