Owner of Kondos Outdoors

Michael Larson (Nov. 17th)

Michael has been a startup junkie since his first job after college.  Since then he has joined other startup ventures and now he has taken that experience to the Great Northwoods. He recently took over Kondos Outdoors, a gear manufacturer making canoe packs, canoe gear, dog sport and dog sledding equipment in Ely, MN.  Michael describes this venture as a startup with 35 years of history, which uniquely brings his experience exploring the BWCAW with his business background to set the company on its course for the future.  Living in Ely, MN, if he’s not making gear in the shop you’ll most likely find him with a paddle in his hands or out joring with his dogs.
