Brian Heifferon

Outbound Collective

When it comes to entertainment, it's far easier to pull out your phone and sink into your chair with a new app than to venture into the outdoors and spontaneously pick up a new skill like alpine climbing, especially if you don't have a close friend who's an avid mountaineer.

There are real world risks involved and you don't get any extra lives.

It can be hard to know where to start without expert knowledge and skills, even for those of us who yearn to break free of the screen. Brian Heifferon, with his lifetime of experience in the outdoors, is determined to help you unleash your inner adventurer. His startup, the Outbound Collective, helps anyone with a thirst for the outdoors discover a community of experts and start exploring without having to blaze the trail all alone.
