Bike Economics: A fundraiser showcasing local, woman-owned, bicycle-oriented businesses
When: Thursday, May 6, from 7:30pm to 9:30pm
Where: United Bicycle Institute, 3961 N Williams Ave, Portland
Donation: $10 to $30
Come meet a cross-section of people in Portland’s bicycle and business communities, learn more about a few local businesses you might not have heard much about and a few that you have doubtless seen all over the news, and be inspired by the possibilities for building a successful business around bicycling.
Check out our all-star list of featured business owners.
Funds raised by this event will create a new scholarship fund. The fund will assist women in attending conferences or pursuing leadership training or professional development workshops for the purpose of enhancing their ability to act as leaders in active transportation.
Featured business owners will have stations set up where they show their work. During the evening we’ll ask each of them to spend one or two minutes each informally telling the room about their work.
A sliding scale donation at the door of $10 to $30 will benefit a new scholarship fund for woman leaders in active transportation. Admission will include light food, drinks, and some spectacular door prizes: check out our sponsors page to see what’s in store.
Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend!
