Student-led Snow Sports Startup: Northwest Technical Outerwear
Mountain Weekly News
When Western Washington University student Nick Marvik was tired of paying for expensive name brand jackets that didn’t meet his needs, he decided to design and create a jacket of his own. After quickly learning how to sew from a friend, Nick soon began making custom ski and snowboard jackets for his close friends. As more and more people became interested in his jackets, he realized what a great opportunity it would be to launch a start up business of his own. After teaching himself to build a website in 3 months, Northwest Technical Outerwear became a reality.
