Julian is a startup entrepreneur based in Colorado Springs, CO. Julian is the Founder & CEO of GetOutfitted, the world’s outdoor gear closet, inspiring and equipping people to step outside. GetOutfitted rents outdoor gear in two ways: direct to the customer’s doorstep or from our local partners on the ground. Founded in 2013, the company serves customers around the country using technology to give people the incredible experiences outside they want without owning the expensive gear they need. The company partners with companies such as Patagonia, Kelty, Burton, Oru Kayaks and many others to make top quality gear rentable for the first time. GetOutfitted is on a mission to get more people outdoors by breaking down the barriers to participation such as the insanely high cost of owning, storing and traveling with outdoor gear. GetOutfitted has been featured in Outside Magazine, USA Today, Women’s Health, Huffington Post and Ski Magazine.
Prior to GetOutfitted, Julian was the co-founder and managing director of a charter school for low-income students called Atlas Preparatory School. Julian and his teammates grew the school from 50 5th graders the first year to more than 800 students across the middle and high school today. The original class of students is in its junior year and is preparing for college applications.
Julian is a graduate of Stanford University and enjoys fly-fishing, mountain biking and hiking with his family.
