Description

Our guests for Episode 60 are Kathy Vega, COO/CTO, and Alex Mulvaney, CEO, and co-founders of ShineOn Bike Lights, a company created to improve the world by making cycling a safer activity in order to reduce pollution and carbon emissions, and allow people to live happier and healthier lives.





In our freewheeling discussion, Kathy, Alex and I get into:





  • how a couple of space science engineers found themselves in the bike equipment business
  • the inspiration and science behind ShineOn Bikes’ innovative technology (including a walkthrough of their dual beam bike light)
  • the challenges of launching a startup as full-time students
  • the significant roles that CU and the Boulder tech community have played in ShineOn’s success 




Follow ShineOn on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook @ShineOnBikes.
