In this episode of the Startup Soirée Podcast we speak with Stacey Chambers from GoGo's Retread Threads. Stacey may have grown up in northern Nevada, but Baltimore is her home. Slinging skirts and continuing her pursuit in the art of being amazing. Spreading joy, good clothes, hugs, and probably a good natured swear word or two with as many people as possible and maybe build a giant robot in her free time.

Stacey travels around Baltimore in her bus Elsa, a highly curated and complex creature hell bent on improving and enhancing the style scene in Baltimore and spreading a little happiness along the way by providing vintage and gently used fashion to the citizens of Baltimore and people of Earth.

Startup Soirée Podcast 016 | Esther Collinetti | REV Cycle Studio

In this episode of the Startup Soirée Podcast we speak with Esther Collinetti from REV Cycle Studio, Baltimore’s first cycle studio. REV is a mind-body-spirit studio that inspires courage and helps others build healthier and happier lives by providing the best indoor cycling experience in the world.

Esther was born in Nigeria and grew up in Chile. Yet even though this worldly woman’s heart is half French (on her mother’s side) and half Italian (on her father’s side), she was honored to pledge her allegiance to the United States when she declared her citizenship in 2013. Baltimore is Esther’s adopted home where she shares a full life with her husband Jim Givens, their petite pit bull Eva, and their two rescue cats.

Esther is a certified cycling instructor, and she has taught in diverse facilities around the globe since 1997. Nothing makes Esther happier than teaching classes and inspiring her clients.
