Cody Whittle: Big Driftless

Local pride and a desire to design and create quality products lie at the center of Cody’s idea to create a Patagonia-inspired line of apparel and accompanying website. “I want Big Driftless to be a company that brings people together through the beauty and integrity of quality products, connects them in their love of the Driftless, and encourages them to give back” he says.  Products will include backpacks, clothing, and other Driftless-centric merchandise and gear.  Cody seeks startup support through patient loans/gifts of money, pre-purchase of product, discounted advertising, business/marketing consulting, facilities, and general enthusiasm for this vision.
