Accelerating the Growth of Innovative Businesses in the Active-Outdoor Industries — and the Women Who Lead Them

Camber Outdoors’ Pitchfest drives innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship in the active-outdoor industries through:

>>  an 8-week intensive mentoring program
>>  a pitch event in front of an audience of over 350 business leaders, investors, and media
>>  one-on-one time with an esteemed judging panel

Showcasing the future of the active-outdoor industries, the Pitchfest event is held prior to Outdoor Retailer Summer Market and is  a fast-paced and interactive  can’t-miss event featuring 6-8 innovative businesses. Each finalist has 5 minutes to articulate their business opportunity and hurdle followed by 7 minutes of rapid-fire questions and feedback from a panel of illustrious judges.
