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.

- the significant roles that CU and the Boulder tech community have played in ShineOn’s success
