What started in 2015 as a web series has become the ultimate case study for how to authentically put your brand at the heart of a compelling story. Now streaming its sixth season, The Small Business Revolution reality series outperforms Hulu's network-funded competitors five to one on Hulu, and earned an Emmy nomination for Best Lifestyle Series in 2021. The campaign has delivered 14 times the reach of a traditional paid media spend, helping a century-old company check-printing company rebuild its brand into a modern, small-business-services provider.

Co-hosted by NBA all star Baron Davis, season six of SBR comes home to the heart of Minneapolis, shining a spotlight on the unique stories and deep-rooted societal challenges faced by Black-owned businesses across the Twin Cities.
