Sheila Moon, Po Campo, My Alibi, Moxie Cycling, Cali Bike Tours… the list could go on and on and on. Across the country, a growing number of established and start-up companies — run by women — are gearing up creative products, services and solutions for bicyclists.
With a theme of “Women Mean Business,” we want to showcase some of these businesses at the National Women’s Bicycling Forum on March 4!
Are you a female entrepreneur with a bike-related business? We want to feature you and your product(s) in the Women Bike Pop-up Shop!
In exchange for selling your wares at this full-day event from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Washington, D.C., we ask that you pay $100 and donate 10% of your proceeds to the League’s Women Bike program. (The $100 fee includes the $85 registration to attend the event, too.)
We have capacity for 20 vendors — with three feet of display space each. Our selections will be based on ensuring a diversity of entrepreneurs and product offerings, but the sooner you apply the better your chances! Applications are due January 23. Selected participants will be notified by February 1.
Can’t make it to the D.C.? You can still be involved!
We’re integrating photos into the Pop-up Shop, too. Just take a picture in the context of your business — posing with your product, standing in front of your storefront — with a sign that says “#WomenBike Means Business.”
Share the photo on Twitter with the #womenbike hashtag or send directly to email@example.com.
