How Active Junky is Thriving at Galvanize – Golden Triangle


Kevin Mclnerney: Active Junky is a one stop
shop for the outdoor enthusiast. So we really wanted to answer two questions, what to buy
and where to buy it. We’re partnered with about 280 brands and retailers to give users
cash back on everything they buy at stores like, REI, Nike, Under Armour, Sports Authority,
Patagonia. We have an in house editorial team and gear testing team creating original content,
gear reviews, athlete focus content that helps people make the right purchase decision. Lio DelPiccolo: Active Junky goes on some
crazy trips, we go down to Chile in the summer to do some gear testing before the winter
season starts up here in North America, you know we’re working while were out there but
it’s also just a lot of fun. Drew Zieff: Every weekend we’re out there
testing gear, be it mountain biking, snow boarding, hiking, climbing, camping, definitely
a Colorado lifestyle company. People who like to work hard and play hard and get after it
on the weekend and just getting people like us who are trying to find the best products,
at the best prices, try an hook them up. Kevin Mclnerney: Denver Texseen is special,
It’s a small town and the tech industry here is absolutely booming right now. Galvanize
helps with that because its really the center of the community. Zach Klabunde: You meet people from all parts
of the business world especially in the start up world there’s designers, there’s venture
capitalists, there’s developers, there’s marketers, there’s everything you can imagine in this
one place. And it definitely leads meetings that never would have happened if they weren’t
here. Kevin Mclnerney: G school is a phenomenal
program for individuals looking to get into a career writing code. We recently hired a
G school graduate and it has been a great thing for our business. They started writing
code from day one, they picked up the project like they’ve been working there for a long
time and they’ve been a great edition to the team. Brady Campbell: We’re so excited to have Active
Junky in our community space, they are the epitome of a Colorado start up, where they
found an industry that their passionate about in a place that they love and have turned
that into a booming business. I love hearing the unique stories about what has happened
to people since they’ve joined this space. It’s really exciting and empowering and it
reminds me that what we are doing is working and powerful and impactful and, I’ve always
wanted to work somewhere where you hear those direct examples and I hear it every day.
