Lessons from Local Leaders:

Matt Knott

When was the last time you felt the pulse of the river beneath a raft or the rush of wind on a zipline? Matt Knott, the adventurous spirit behind River Riders, invites us to navigate the twists and turns of his journey from a college raft guide to the entrepreneur who, alongside his wife, shaped an outdoor utopia in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Peeling back the layers of their story, we get an insider’s look at the challenges and triumphs of growing a business that now encompasses not just rafting, but a full spectrum of adventure and hospitality services.

Embark on our latest episode as we sail through the marketing seas that help adventure sports companies like River Riders thrive. Discover the blend of social media acumen, targeted Google campaigns, and the invaluable currency of word-of-mouth that draws nature enthusiasts to Harpers Ferry’s scenic allure. And as we chart the parallels between the resurgence of the ski industry and the blossoming summer adventure sports scene, Matt shares his vision of embracing the wave of outdoor recreation providers to gear up for a summer brimming with thrill-seekers ready to plunge into River Riders’ offerings.
