More about Davis Smith
Davis Smith is the CEO and Founder of Cotopaxi which is his 3rd business to date. Davis co-founded Cotopaxi with the goal of building an outdoor gear company that could make meaningful strides toward helping others. After spending much of his childhood and early adulthood living in Central and South America, Davis realized he could build a company with a supply chain that drastically improves people’s lives while raising awareness about staggering global inequalities.

Cotopaxi creates innovative outdoor products and experiences that help alleviate poverty, move people to do good, and inspire adventure.
