Tailored for the Outdoor Entrepreneur: The Telluride Venture Accelerator

Want to know how to take the inspiration for the mountain lifestyle and turn it into a successful company? Interested in hearing about how successful entrepreneurs are seeking out funding today? Wondering how to go from concept to reality and launch with your business idea?

Today’s Intrepid Entrepreneur is a must-listen show for you. In this episode, I have the honor of leading a panel of three great entrepreneurial minds in the active outdoor lifestyle markets: Thea Chase, Director of the Telluride Venture Accelerator (TVA), Gordon Seabury, Founder and CEO of Toad&Co, (formerly Horny Toad Activewear), and Ross Saldarini, Founder and President of Mountain Khakis. When do you ever get a chance to hear three successful, visionary entrepreneurs talk shop about creating success and impact with a business in the outdoor, bike, snow, endurance, travel or health-and-wellness markets? Apparently, that would be today, in this podcast! You’ll also learn why TVA is an exceptional accelerator program for founders in these markets and perhaps most importantly, each of my guests shares their inspiration around creating a business that is also a vehicle for positive change!
