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

Camber Outdoors’ Pitchfest was created to inspire and drive innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship among women with a passion for the outdoors.  

Women-led small businesses can 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. 

The event, which includes live feedback from a panel of industry judges, takes place the day before the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market tradeshow.

Camber Outdoors Pitchfest is funded in part by the REI Foundation’s Mary Anderson Legacy Grant and the Meineke Family Foundation.
