Cain Ramirez – Paper Moon Coffee Company

Cain co-founded Cowgirl Bike Courier, a San Jose-based bike messenger service, with Amanda Muehlbauer in 2014. After running the business for a few years in the South Bay, better business opportunities led him to San Francisco; but after an injury and changes in the messenger industry, Cain retired from that business. Soon after, the contacts he had made as a messenger led him to his next gig with Paper Moon Coffee Company.

In our conversation, Cain share is a journey as an entrepreneur, lessons from running a business, and his goals as vice president of Paper Moon.
