From ASI founders : What we’re thankful for:
There’s no doubt that 2020 has been a challenging and unusual year. Pandemic, tornadoes and hurricanes, wildfires political unrest, business closures and record unemployment – and yet despite all that we have so many things for which to be thankful and grateful.
Our company: we’re still open and delighting our visitors and guests as we get ready for our 3rd Thanksgiving since opening our doors!
Our staff: who were all furloughed in back in March/April when we had to close our doors, all opted to re-start with us in May, and have been working hard every day. Not only are they amazing Adventure Guides for our guests, but they are mastering a variety of tasks, from marketing to content creation to operations. And of course, handling an insane amount of cleaning and sanitizing to keep customers and ourselves healthy, always with a smile.
Our mentors and supporters: The local organizations and individuals that have been supporting us since Adventure Sports Innovation was just a “PowerPoint concept”; for helping us find additional funding, helping us to network and market, listening to our evolving plans and generally supporting us to keep our doors open and find ways to continue growing (TSBDC, SCORE, City of Chattanooga, Chattanooga Tourism Co., Chamber of Commerce), and thanks to the organizations organizing virtual learning opportunities for our industries, like Arival, Start Up Week, Startup of the year, Amex, IAPPA and the SBA.
Our Community: Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature Center where we tour with our Swincars, multiple local schools like the STEM School, GPS and Silverdale Baptist, the many organizations that have trusted us with their team building events, the entrepreneurial community in Chattanooga, and many more.
Our product partners: who continue to invent and innovate, bringing excitement and a sense of adventure to our mission, and, especially, to those who understand the long term goals of market building.
Last, but certainly not least, we’re grateful to all of our customers, our professional network, and our family & friends for constant support and encouragement. We’re extremely grateful, and will do our best to keep giving back with interesting, exciting stories and content, fun adventures and our sense of wonder at the technical marvels we continue to find and explore.
Patrick & Carolina, Adventure Sports Innovation founders
