正港MIT的 Hike Right 創辦人 Adam Massingale
Hike Right Founder Adam Massingale’s MIT Philosophy
人客來坐 My Taiwan Story
Most people in other parts of the world know MIT stands for the famous ivy league school. But everyone here in Taiwan refers to it as Made In Taiwan! This week we’ve invited a true MIT entrepreneur Adam to talk about how his passion for the outdoors/Taiwan as well as “hiker’s crotch” (haha, who knew!?) would lead to him starting his own outdoor supply company here in Taiwan.
If you love the outdoors and love Taiwan, please support awesome companies like Hike Right that really focus on sustainability as well as giving back! By shopping Hike Right products, you automatically contribute to helping non-profit groups working in environmental education, conservation, and rehabilitation. And best yet, everything from material sourcing and manufacturing production are all done right here in Taiwan! A true MIT head-to-toe!
大學讀教育的Adam亂打亂撞的在聽了朋友的意見而來到台灣。結果Adam一待就黏在這裡了。熱愛登山的他很喜歡到處趴趴走，探索台灣山林的美景。但是Adam慢慢發現，在台灣高品質的登山產品太貴，以致於很多登山客沒有辦法盡情/舒服的享受到美好的登山體驗。再加上台灣的氣候並不是像其他歐美國家，所以有些專門為歐美市場設計的產品並不全然適合台灣的環境。再加上貴的登山產品品質好歸好，但價位很高。 但平價的登山品牌的品質又很難控制。所以Adam決定要改變這個情況，研發一個適合台灣氣候，高品質高CP值的純台灣製造MIT登山產品品牌 Hike Right ！
