"It’s a great honor to be part of this year’s panel. Having been part of the ISPO BRANDNEW community--and fortunate enough to be the ISPO BRANDNEW Overall Winner and Product of the Year at the ISPO AWARD--left Oru Kayak with a sense of responsibility to give back. We want to be part of the next wave of change makers, and we believe that there is no better time or place than right now and right here. So, let's make the change we all hope to see in the world!"
Ardy is an entrepreneur and business strategist, energized by ideation, iteration and systems design. After earning an MBA in Design Strategy from California College of the Arts in 2012, Ardy helped launched Oru Kayak via Kickstarter with his two co-founders.
He is motivated by a desire to use human-centered design to make the outdoors more accessible for all. He believes that clever, forward-thinking solutions will soon create game-changing products and services in the outdoor industry.
