Here at fayVen, we LOVE small business! Unfortunately, many small businesses across the country are struggling to keep their doors open because of increased rent, online commerce, and Big Box stores. So, in order to keep small businesses strong, we came up with a creative solution to help one another out as a community.
Mission: To provide local venue owners additional revenue streams to help them stay in business for many years and to provide artisans and mobile vendors the opportunity to sell their products and services in their communities and beyond.
Vision: Creating communities that collaborate to support small business
