How It Works

After having to close their storefronts in response to COVID-19, Subculture Coffee needed a solid web developer to update their website to better serve customers as they shifted gears to accommodate online orders.

1909 member Josh leaped in — within 48 hours, Subculture had a fully rebuilt and streamlined e-commerce presence and began to generate much-needed revenue to support their team here in West Palm Beach.

We Need You!

The above is just one of many examples from within our local area. We have drowning businesses who can’t afford to get the help they need — and talented individuals desperately in need of paying work who can provide those services. By partnering with us financially, you can make a major impact on the business community of South Florida.

1909 Member Spotlight | Ricky Aiken, Founder of Inner City Innovators | We Are 1909

I believe that my values and the values of many of the people who call 1909 home are very similar. We are not only trying to impact what’s going on here in our city, but in the world. I wouldn’t be able to do the work I do here in the community without the brainpower I have behind me at 1909.
