Grant Opportunity for Outdoor Entrepreneurs: Moosejaw Outdoor Accelerator
I received an email regarding an opportunity to be awarded a grant for innovative outdoor products or services offered by Moosejaw and wanted to share since we have membership in a wide range of business sectors and may have some entrepreneurs among us. Here are the details:

Calling All Outdoor Entrepreneurs:

We’ve teamed up with ICELab at Western Colorado UniversityCamber OutdoorsHolland & Hart, and Gear Junkie to bring the Moosejaw Outdoor Accelerator to the outdoor industry. The Outdoor Accelerator will help a group of four entrepreneurs launch their product or service through business mentoring, marketing strategy, legal consultation, and connection building.

We’re looking for early-stage companies (pre-seed or seed) that have a product, service, or technology that addresses a compelling need in the outdoor industry. We’re targeting founders from under-represented groups in the outdoor industry or businesses that would help improve inclusivity of outdoor participation; however, neither are a requirement for applying and selection.

Past Outdoor Accelerator graduates include GearoGeyser Systems, andHustle Bike Labs, all of which continue to thrive 18-months later and presented at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Show, winning accolades.

The Accelerator doesn't require any fees or equity grants from the winning startups, and also covers the costs of lodging in Boulder and Gunnison, CO. We do not provide funding but can help with investment mentoring, legal advice and connections to potential investors.

We’re accepting applications through Jan 18th, so hop to, or spread the word.

Don’t have a start-up but want in on the action? Sit tight, because we’ll be asking you to vote for your favorite start-ups starting on Jan 25th.
