Revive! Omaha Magazine was launched in 2008. In 2012, co-publishers Willie and Yolanda Barney, launched the Revive! Black Business Luncheon.
Since that time over 350 black owned business owners, entrepreneurs and supportive organizations have participated. The monthly luncheon is held the 4th Friday of each month and has moved into the Revive Center located at 24th and Lake.
The Black Business Luncheon served as a launching pad for the Revive! Black Business Network and Revive! Black Business Guide and Directory.
Revive! also partners with the Empowerment Network to host the Black Business Expo at the Network’s annual African-American Leadership Conference. Revive has also hosted workshops, summits and special events specifically for black business owners and entrepreneurs. Willie and Yolanda have also assisted dozens of entrepreneurs with launching, expanding and enhancing their business.
Big things are on the horizon for the Revive Black Business Network.
