Startup Outdoorsy Goes From Crisis to Boom During Pandemic
Initially as the COVID-19 pandemic hit the United States and North America, almost every travel, sports, recreation and hospitality business was hit hard.
That included Outdoorsy, the RV rental marketplace based in Silicon Valley, but as Americans have adjusted to travel by road and concerns of keeping a safe environment instead of a hotel, the startup has seen a massive surge into the summer.
CEO Jeff Cavins, in a conversation with Emily Chang, says Outdoorsy went from a 90% decline in business to now revenue of $3M per day.
93% of customers are first-time users of an RV experience.
