FRAMINGHAM – Framingham resident Brandale Randolph will discuss the The Rise of Social Entrepreneurs at the Framingham Public Library’s Brown Bag Learning Series event in September.
The event will be Friday, September 11 at noon on Zoom. Email firstname.lastname@example.org by 9 a.m. on September 11, to receive an invitation to the Zoom session.
The 1854 Cycling Company started as a small business in Framingham. The company was founded by Randolph, who is also the CEO.
Randolph will talk about how he pivoted from a career in finance, managing commodities for a hedge fund to fighting for poverty alleviation.
He’ll share his vision for his company and his passion to help stop the cycle of poverty and lower the recidivism rate through the creation of gainful employment opportunities and skill development for formerly incarcerated people.
1854 Cycling seeks to carve out a niche for itself in the bicycle industry while joining the efforts of companies like TOMS and Warby Parker, who are committed to making a positive social impact.
Randolph attended the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. He also is an author and an activist. He lives with his wife and children in Framingham.
