Tech + Recreation: How Back40 uses tech to facilitate access to the outdoors 

By Henry Gilbert, Founder of Back40

A competitor on Season 5 of Greenlight Maine, Henry Gilbert of Back40 built an online platform to help Mainers and tourists easily access our state’s great outdoors. The Portland, ME-based startup features an online, on-demand outdoor gear rental service that enables customers to reserve pre-assembled camping kits and a la carte rentals for local pickup and campsite delivery.

In his Tech Talk, Henry will share his story of founding Back40: how he conceived and built the rental platform and logistics chain, his plans for future growth, and how his product uses technology to boost outdoor recreation in Maine.

You can follow Back40 on Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and via an e-mail newsletter.
