Bamboo Bike Studio
The Bamboo Bike studio is headquartered in Brooklyn, New York and San Francisco, California. They spread the love of bike-making by running build-your-own-bike workshops and selling build-your-own-bike kits. They recently started a bicycle-building factory in Ghana, the first of its kind.

Project M
Project M is a collective of designers and creative doers who develop ideas to improve the world and work together to make them happen. We’ve delivered supplies to Hurrican Katrina victims, opened a pie shop and community center in rural Alabama, built a horseshoe park in Detroit, protested in Iceland, inspired bankers in Germany, and provided clean drinking water to homes in need—just to name a few. Many of these projects have been covered by the New York Times, GOOD, Fast Company, and numerous design publications.

HERO
HERO works as a catalyst for community development in areas of the Alabama Black Belt to end rural poverty. As a non-profit housing resource center, HERO provides community resources and housing education.

HERO began in 1994 by a group of committed citizens who wanted to create a strong community focused on family. HERO is a 501c3 non-profit organization.


COMMON + Common Cycles
COMMON is one part community, one part business prototyper, and one part collaborative brand. COMMON is a living network of creative people rapidly prototyping progressive businesses designed to solve social problems. We’re confident that benefiting people, communities, society, the environment and future generations is the new advantage in business. We’re launching the COMMON CYCLES brand in support of this transition from competitive advantage to collaborative advantage.
