The Wright Contenders | 2019

Each year, Something Independent embarks on a mission to assemble a new class of Wright contenders. These outdoor-inspired founders are apt to have started their businesses not on the whiteboard or in the conference room, but rather on the trail, around the campfire, or on the back of a napkin over a whiskey. These companies are set apart not only by their grit and resilience but in their approach to work which we see as honest, committed and collaborative.
