Vegan Services Collective Meeting (for Vegan Entrepreneurs)

We* are looking to build a Vegan Services Collective and Directory. What better way to start than to have you join us onAugust 2nd from 1:00-3:00pm at the Animal Rights Coalition Office.  If you are a vegan and have a business or service that you would like to promote (baker; child-care provider; hair stylist; mechanic; nutritionist; physician; realtor; and anything else) this is for you. We will take a moment to introduce ourselves and our businesses and then discuss how we can best support our fellow vegans by purchasing their goods and services. The long-term goal is to create a directory (e-directory and possibly a paper directory). This will be a joint venture and so we are (also) seeking individuals who are interested in and have the appropriate skills to move this project forward.

Feel free to bring a vegan snack to share with others.

*Who are we? Connie R. and AmyLeo B., long-time animal advocates and ARC members. Connie R. is an independent realtor and AmyLeo B. is a vegan chef, instructor and coach.

    I meant to put this up right away, but I was either busy or focusing on the crap life has been throwing at me recently. I ended up polishing it a little though :)

    Katie, at Horst and Friends (at MOA and off of 35W and East Hennepin), they use all Intelligent Nutrient products. Only one of their products (the lip balm, I think) is not vegan. But they are really good about knowing and double checking for you. That's where I go, and my stylist is awesome. Her name is Shawna.

      Just looked them up, too. Pretty far out of my price range :( It's nice to know it's an option though. Thanks!

      Keep an eye out for Groupons and Living Social coupons. Every once in a while, they have super awesome specials.

    I'm a 'maybe' right now. I would like to meet with a hair stylist who will wash and cut my hair using vegan products. I love my current stylist, but they use products that contain animal products.

      Also, Amanda Evans is an ARC volunteer and she is a stylist and make up artist. I think she works out of Eden Prairie.

    For those of you who are not able to attend and love this idea, keep in mind that we will be having more of these. Maybe quarterly? Not sure yet. I look forward to meeting everyone tomorrow.

    Btw, I'm a web developer, so if anyone needs help making something new and fancy (function wise, I don't do design), I could help.
    Once Joe gets around to putting a base together for http://fullvegan.com/ I'll probably start working on that a little.

      Hey I'm a web developer too (wordpress) -- but I am better at design than the hardcore coding stuff -- would be cool to meet you!

    Full Vegan: I was actually going to suggest you go to this awhile back, apparently you found it on your own just fine :)

    I would like to be a part of this. However, on this date, I'm already volunteering for ARC, so I won't be able to make it. Keep me posted on the meetings, though.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
