2019 i.Invest Second Place Winner - Bikeware

"Participating in the i.Invest National Youth Business Competition has been a pivotal experience for my business. When I first applied, my company didn't have much of a growth strategy and there were still quite a few unanswered questions. Throughout the 6 month process, I was able to develop the business model, learn from industry professionals, and answer many of those questions. I loved listening to all our speakers during the mentor session and meeting our incredible judges!"
