V.I.B.E. (Vegan. Inspired. Business. Empowerment) Resource Group is an organization that helps vegan business owners network, share resources and host fundraisers.
V.I.B.E. Resource Group was founded in Northern California by vegan business owner, Deborah “Bee” Uytiepo, after having a conversation with a vegan in her neighborhood. They were wishing there was a vegan business networking group. Instead of waiting for someone else to create one, Bee decided to start one herself. Soon after, Alicia Smiley, vegan chef and owner of a vegan catering company well.fed. (http://allwellfed.com/) came up with the name. Bee and other vegan business owners began hosting meetings throughout the California Bay Area.
V.I.B.E. Resource Group was created to … increase vegan options be inspired be a part of a vegan business village
empowerment for those seeking to empower others vegan businesses for our earth, for all living beings, for our future, for our health, for life.
Special thanks to Chuck (founder) and Amy Pfaffman (owner of Amy the Organizer) for your previous organizing for this Meetup Group.
