COMMON Maniacal Business Attack, Common Cycles

COMMON is a collaborative brand bent on bringing people together to rapidly create and launch socially beneficial businesses. Common Cycles is their first MBA (Maniacal Business Attack) program, and is has just closed on accepting applications for one of ten spots designing and building Common Cycles from the ground up based on the goal of creating the most renewable and sustainable bike on the market created primarily from Alabama grown bamboo. See more at the Common Cycles MBA info page.

Participating in a COMMON event is as much about individual growth as it is about enterprise growth. Participating in the genesis of an actual social venture is something few people ever get the chance to do. The experience is designed be transformative for all. Gaining experience, business contacts, exposure to a large community, life-long friendships and perhaps a whole new career.

You. You’re a designer, an engineer, a PHD in french literature, an economist, whatever. Just explain to us why this matters and why you’ll be great. For this one we could really use some people from the bike industry particularly. Not to follow the rules but for help breaking them. Speaking of breaking the rules, you’ll be working alongside legendary designers, creators, capitalists and entrepreneurs including John Bielenberg, Alex Bogusky, Rob Schuham, Stephen Groth and others.
