The owner of Pedal, an independent, full-service bicycle shop, will be the next speaker in the Entrepreneurship Forum speaker series at Western Michigan University’s Haworth College of Business.

Krone previously worked as a self-proclaimed “computer nerd” for many years, specializing in industrial strength consumer and commercial applications in the banking and automotive finance industries.
After leaving the technical services industry, Krone landed a job at a bike shop and fell in love with the bikes, technology and people. And out of this, Pedal was born. In addition to bike sales, Pedal offers bike services and rentals.
