The Wright is Back!


Greetings from The Wright. Fall is upon us, the ski season is beginning, and thoughts are turning to Thanksgiving and the holidays. 'Tis the season we go scouting for a special collection of companies. Businesses that draw their inspiration from the great outdoors. Led by bold, principled founders who share a deep connection to place - specifically, the Mountain West.

Let's get right to it: we are currently accepting contender nominations for the 2020 Wright Award through November 30th.


Hatched in 2011 as a non-traditional business award program recognizing the outdoor entrepreneur, The Wright has evolved and expanded over the years. At its core, is a community of doers drawn to the path less travelled. The kind to bet on instinct over conventional wisdom. Committed to a purpose beyond the bottom line.

Over nine years, we have had the privilege of recognizing 117 companies representing 48 communities across four Rocky Mountain states. These businesses make the things and design the stuff that move us into and through the outdoors. Their ideas are hatched not on the whiteboard or in the boardroom, but rather in the backcountry, on the chairlift or around the campfire. 

Contenders are considered via by peer nomination only. We invite you to recognize companies who are #onthewrightpath by submitting a nomination on their behalf this November.
