Camber Outdoors Pitchfest was created in 2015 to ensure the active-outdoor industries attract bold, visionary womxn with a passion for business and the outdoors, while driving industry-wide innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship. In 2019, we are proud to expand elgible business to womxn and/or minority-founded and led. We have an amazing community of alumnae, judges, mentors, coaches, partners, and sponsors who have been making this vision a reality.
Where are they now?
“Pitchfest was the most impactful program I participated in all year. The mentorship, network, and visibility I walked away with helped me understand and take my business to the next level.”
–Gloria Hwang, Co-founder of Thousand and 2017 Pitchfest finalist
“The most valuable thing I got from Pitchfest was a dose of confidence and a sense of validation… Being able to present my business and my vision to a panel (and room) of industry executives and have them applaud me for being on to something and encouraging me to think bigger really gave me a good boost. Now, when I look back over the my company’s history, I look at things through the lens of pre-Pitchfest vs. post-Pitchfest.”
–Maria Boustead, Founder of Pocampo and 2016 Pitchfest finalist
“Pitchfest gave me an incredible opportunity to expose my business to some of the most respected leaders in the industry. The mentorship experience and the connections that I made during the event will absolutely contribute to my success in growing BlokRok.”
–Arianna, Founder and CEO of BlokRok and 2015 Pitchfest finalist
