Huckberry Launches Explorer’s Grants
Get paid to adventure
Purveyors of trendy and coveted gear for men, online retailer Huckberry is now sponsoring adventures. Born in an apartment three years ago, the bootstrapped company boasts an in-house climbing wall and a never-ending array of cool products. But it does more than just sell copper mugs and leather Dopp kits. This spring, Huckberry will give $1,000 each to three hopeful adventurers with the best pitches.
Funded by National Geographic Adventurer of the Year Alistair Humphreys, your adventure’s only requirements are that it’s rad and has never been done before. Besides the cash, Topo Designs, Nemo, Poler, and Goal Zero are also pitching in to support the winners on their independent journeys. Although $1,000 might not get you a plane ticket abroad, the Huckberry team reminds you that Humphreys was able to walk across India on that budget.
The deadline to apply is March 31. Three winners, selected by Humphreys, will be announced April 9.
