Sustainable entrepreneur, thought leader, and inventor, Adrian Solgaard, is the Founder and CEO of sustainable travel goods and accessories company, Solgaard.
A serial entrepreneur, Adrian started his first t-shirt business at sixteen years old to pay for travel to compete in pro BMX contests. Adrian’s second business venture was a creative agency, specializing in the production of music videos and television commercials. Adrian’s third venture and first foray into product innovation was a bicycle lock company launched on Kickstarter in 2013, which he later sold in 2016.
In 2016, Adrian launched his fourth and most lucrative venture to date; sustainable travel goods company, Solgaard. A design-driven sustainable luxury brand always ready for adventure, Solgaard enhances life on-the-go with premium gear for global citizens. Today, the Solgaard sustainable design portfolio includes luggage, bags, backpacks, wearable solar tech accessories, and luxury timepieces.
In 2019, Solgaard launched its Shore-TexTM accessories collection made entirely of recycled ocean plastics. Having pledged to remove five pounds of plastic waste from the ocean for every product sold, SOLGAARD is working to achieve its goal of cutting ocean- bound plastic waste in half by 2024.
