Episode 2

Seema Brodie, L’01

It took just one event for Seema Brodie, L’01, founder of BikeBus, a cycling gym on wheels with a patent-pending safety system, to get reconnected to Northeastern. She hosted a Huskies Fitness class, part of an event series organized by the Office of Alumni Relations. From there, she became involved in the Women Who Empower program’s annual summit. She was also a featured guest at the She Started It Film Festival, organized by OAR and IDEA, Northeastern’s student-run venture accelerator—where she found business-development support, networking opportunities, and access to new investors. Today, Brodie is leveraging the McCarthy(s) Venture Mentoring Network, and she has given talks at the School of Law about her startup.
