Dave Ollila really is the "everyman" entrepreneur. He's someone you'd want to grab a beer with. From a casual conversation, you'd never guess he had already started several successful companies over the past decade, and is fresh off an invitation to the White House. This is because Dave is not your typical businessman. He does not conform to existing norms, rules or expectations. Dave sees opportunity wherever he goes and believes anyone can design and manufacture products profitably in the US, with a little creativity and better use of existing manufacturing resources.

With his latest company, Marquette Backcountry, Dave is walking the walk, in addition to talking the talk. Not only is he creating a successful business model and introducing innovative products to consumers and retailers, but he's doing it all in Marquette, Michigan. Dave is taking things in a different direction from most manufacturers and "Insourcing" everything, and receiving recognition for his innovative perspective all the way up to the White House.

Join Dave today, DAY 1 of ORWM '12, as he shares his vision of putting Americans to Work. Marquette Backcountry skis will be available to order at a discount, and then you can watch them being made in the factory via live streaming video.

So, if outsourcing jobs, or the low snow is bringing you down, swing by the Marquette Backcountry booth and get yourself a double elixir of amazing season-extending skis and Watching An American Work.
