Over the course of 2013 we were able to be there to power and support moments. The type of moments that are life changing. The kind that stick with you. We were with Eric Larsen as he tried for the South Pole on a bike. We were with Mike Libecki in Kyrgyzstan as he put up first ascents in the Tien Shan Mountains. We powered Renan Ozturk as he shot photos of Alex Honnold free soloing in the Bugaboos.
You came together to help the Philippines. You helped us raise enough to get power to those in need and you gave our partners the ability to work through long nights giving relief. You were there to help us achieve more than we thought possible.
“2013 was a defining year for GOAL ZERO as we released 13 new, innovative products and we began several initiatives to support our key retail partners” said Joe Atkin, GOAL ZERO CEO. “Every year brings its opportunities and challenges and I believe that after this year, GOAL ZERO is better positioned to achieve its mission of empowering people by putting power in the hands of every human.”
We were there to support you and on your adventures and we are grateful that you have been there to support our big moments in 2013. Here are some of our biggest moments of the year:
We proudly introduced 13 new products among which were; The Lighthouse 250, Yeti 400, Yeti 150, and the Rock Out 2.
Our team of ambassadors grew to include Mike Libecki, Alex Honnold, Ueli Steck, and Chris Burkard. Our products have helped them stay out longer to get the shot, send their project, and explore remote parts of the globe.
We were also proud to make the top 10 on the Inc. 500 fastest growing companies list. Our products were put to the test by Gear Patrol, and also made National Geographic's "Gear of the Year" guide. Our Chris Burkard video was also featured by Buzzfeed. We are grateful that we were able to be there with you when you needed us. We are glad that we could bring light and comfort to those in need when the power went out. Thank you for taking us on your adventures and for sharing your big moments with us. We look forward to a big 2014. Get out, stay out, and keep living the solar life! "If not now, when? If not you, who?"- GZ Founder Robert Workman
