Pitchfest

Supporting the Development of Innovative Small Businesses in the Active-Outdoor Industries—and the Women Who Lead Them

Camber Outdoors’ Pitchfest drives innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship among women with a passion for the outdoors.

Women-led small businesses apply to showcase their work and growth plans to some of the active-outdoor industry’s most influential CEOs, entrepreneurs, investors, and thought leaders. Finalists are chosen based on the strength of their application, involvement/impact on the outdoor experience, knowledge of their business, and understanding of growth hurdles. 

This year’s event took place on July 25th at Petzl headquarters near Salt Lake City. Read the coverage here:

Camber Outdoors Pitchfest is funded in part by The REI Foundation’s Mary Anderson Legacy Grant.
