Aaron Powell ('11), Denton :: recently launched a new line of Danish-style family cargo bikes from his company, Urban Tribe Cargo Bicycles. The bicycles, inspired when Aaron took a trip to Copenhagen, Denmark, is a three-wheel bike with a cargo box in front of the handlebars that allow parents to talk to their kids while riding and can fit up to four kids. Powell received help from the student-run Family Business and Entrepreneurship Club to reach more clients. The students helped him determine the best demographics to sell to, build B2B (business to business) relationships with area bike shops and maximize the logistics of shipping the bikes from Europe and assembly in Texas. Aaron previously worked as a teacher in Denton.
