Sheri Tingey, Owner, Alpaca Raft
Alpacka Raft started in the fall of 2000 as a collaboration between Sheri Tingey, the design genius behind all of the products, and her son Thor, who had just completed a 600-mile packrafting traverse of Alaska's Brooks Range and had some ideas for how to make a better performing packraft. Her journey to starting her business began when they received a second Ritt Kellog Fund grant and spent 39 days traversing 600-miles of the Brooks Range, where they found that the packrafts they used were wholly inadequate. Inspired by her trip, Sheri created her first boat that took the packraft world by storm. However, her success didn't come without its challenges and hurtles, where you will leave this talk feeling inspired on how Sheri overcame these obstacles and built for the future.
