How One Traveler Discovered The Next Best Thing For Bicyclists

Griffin Sinn knows a great opportunity when he sees one.

When Griffin saw people covering their bike seats with plastic bags, he knew there had to be an easier way to stay dry. Protecting bike seats from the rain became his mission and from this the CLOAK’d Saddle Bag was born.

One Woman’s Path to Cultural Immersion and Entrepreneurship

Living abroad, especially in a country where you don’t natively speak the language, is never easy. It’s even more of a challenge if you start a company there. And that’s is exactly what Elizabeth J. Taylor did.
