FUND

Invest in Adventure

We're all in this together.

We've created a resource library to help small businesses navigate COVID-19.

In it, you'll find a PPP loan calculator and more information on SBA Loan funding, cash management, and macroeconomic outlooks.

 

WHAT WE DO

We love the great outdoors
and building great businesses.

Canyonlands specializes in growing outdoor recreation businesses including tour operators, B2B platforms, and ancillary consumer services. We partner with passionate operators as well as business owners preparing for retirement.

OUR APPROACH

We partner with businesses with at least $10 million in revenue or a bottom line of at least $3 million 

Our approach is to invest in our partners financially as well as strategically through operational, marketing, and technical support. We're building a portfolio of services and software providers that enable outdoor recreation businesses to thrive. We want to help our partners do what they do best: provide amazing experiences or products for their clients. We do this by infusing their business with capital and supporting back office functions.
