30 UNDER 30

The Outdoor Industry's Brightest Young Minds

BACKGROUND

Outdoor 30 Under 30 highlights the athletes, designers, founders, and misfits who are challenging the status quo and driving the industry forward. They are the crazy ones. The movers and makers. The bold. The quiet geniuses. The clever and collaborative. The stubborn and passionate.

..

This project was born on a long, muddy run. An otherwise innocuous moment, high on endorphins, chasing miles as the sun set. We had recently read Forbes 30 Under 30 and saw white space. A few hours of research confirmed our suspicions: this is the first ever outdoor specific list. 

..

Nominations were open during the month of February and winners can be seen below. An award ceremony will take place at Summer Outdoor Retailer, including short presentations from select winners. Details about the event to come soon.
