Steven Wilcox - PARKIT (rerun)

Steven Wilcox is a graduate of Chapman University in Orange County, California. After school, he began working with global action sports brands such as Oakley, Quiksilver, DC Shoes and Roxy, where he developed a fundamental understanding of brand building and the strategies required to authentically reach a brand's audience.

Today, Steven is the Founder and CEO of PARKIT, an outdoor brand that wants you to get outside and Enjoy The Exploration.


PARKIT’s first product, an outdoor chair they call VOYAGER, launched on Kickstarter during the peak of COVID-19. Despite the restrictions on outdoor activities, PARKIT raised over $500,000 in pre-order sales in less than 45 days and the brand is now operating as a formal Direct To Consumer business, shipping units of their Voyager chairs to adventure seekers and families across the United States every single day. If they can keep them in-stock that is!
