Take a look at the badass outdoor brands we’ve helped propel to uncharted heights of success.
Through BOW, I was able to expand my network while honing my business skills as an entrepreneur in the outdoor industry. It's no wonder we already have 10x our revenue in the first year following the program!
The BOW mentors provided not only experience, but also counseling to move us through difficult decisions and point out the issues/questions we weren't experienced enough to identify on our own.
It's lonely running and/or owning a business. Having the BOW mentors to rely on, not only during the program but also afterward, made me feel more secure in some of my challenging business decisions and directions.
I can't say enough good things about the BOW program, and most importantly, the mentors. This program brought so much clarity to our strategy, margins, sales channels, and financial plan.
The BOW program helped us develop systems to grow the business financially and from a brand standpoint. Additionally, the connections we made in the outdoor industry, including and beyond our BOW mentors, were so valuable to us.

Through BOW, I was able to expand my network while honing my business skills as an entrepreneur in the outdoor industry. The community, resources, and friendships have lasted well beyond the formal program, and I have been well supported with both strategic and tactical insights as my business has grown. The mentors all come with real-world practical experience in the outdoor industry, having pioneered some of the most prolific and respected brands. Without their knowledge, wisdom, and, most importantly, willingness to share, we undoubtedly would not be growing at the pace we currently are. It's no wonder we already have 10x our revenue in the first year following the program!
I can't say enough good things about the BOW program and, most importantly, the mentors. I met so many amazing people while participating in the BOW Accelerator, many of which I still work with years later. This program brought so much clarity to our strategy, margins, sales channels, and financial plan. I would recommend BOW to anyone who is serious about becoming a well-known brand in the outdoor industry.
We would have never grown at the pace or to the level of profitability without the mentorship we gained from Bend Outdoor Worx. Growing from $40k in annual sales in 2014 to over $4M in global annual sales is proof we have a solid model. We are also profitable, own a light industrial building, and have 11 employees.
The B.O.W. program has been a game-changer for my small business. As a solo entrepreneur, managing all the moving pieces was a challenge. This program helped me develop and structure every aspect of my business. Working with seven knowledgeable mentors on a weekly basis has been fantastic, keeping me engaged and on track. The in-person workshops are like fun BootCamps. Now, my business has a solid infrastructure for intelligent growth. Thanks to B.O.W., I've gained the necessary support and guidance to thrive as an entrepreneur.
In addition to the mentors showcased here, we bring in industry experts and exceptional individuals on a case-by-case basis to meet each cohort company’s needs.
