Thank you Park City, Utah, for having us. Your mountains were breathtaking, the weather was perfect… and our time at Encamp’s Fall Summit 2021 was pretty awesome! (We all followed the Covid-19 protocols set by Encamp and by Park City officials, by the way.)
After all, who gets to hang with your work friends, hike, ride horses, go trap shooting, build catapults, chill by a fire, eat, drink, and forget about the daily routine for a few days? Call it camaraderie, fellowship, whatever. Because at Encamp, it’s genuine — and it’s special.
Like our Summer Camp in Indianapolis earlier this year, Fall Summit 2021 served as a gathering place for Encamp’s fully remote workforce. The Summit gave us the chance to catch up with our fellow Encampers in person, and meet all the new faces who’ve come on board since Summer Camp. To all the new Encampers, welcome!
Experiencing Encamp’s culture in person and not just virtually is why our CEO and co-founder Luke Jacobs and the Encamp leadership team started these seasonal happenings. And they only promise to get more adventurous.
The Fall Summit was a time to remind everyone what Encamp’s values are as an organization and where we’re headed as a technology innovator in the environmental compliance industry.
The first item was reviewing Encamp’s Core Values and announcing our quarterly Core Value Award winners.
Next on the agenda was an introduction to all the Encamp teams and their respective missions. (Reach out the respective department leaders on LinkedIn.) In a nutshell:
Engineering, headed by Ben Jacobs | Mission: “To end copy and paste reporting by building the Iron Man suit for EHS professionals.”
Product, headed by Pauline Chen | Mission: “Become the go-to environmental compliance platform for compliance professionals and executives.”
Customer Success, headed by Megan Walters | Mission: “To provide support and expertise to our external and internal customers to keep them in compliance, make their lives easier when it comes to EHS, and create raving Encamp fans.”
Sales, headed by Sam Jacobs | Mission: “To deliver meaningful experiences through the entirety of the prospect lifecycle, with the end goal in mind… driving revenue to the company.”
Marketing, headed by Jessica Engel | Mission: “To drive brand awareness and demand for Encamp as the go-to environmental compliance solution for EHS professionals and executives.”
Finance, headed by Heather Shanahan | Mission: “To manage the financial needs of our customers and the business, serve and support outside stakeholders, and serve and support each department in the operations of Encamp.”
People, headed by Samantha Strube | Mission: “To enable a healthy, high performing culture that scales.”
Everyone at Fall Summit was additionally reminded of how truly innovative the Encamp platform is in making compliance reporting faster, easier, and more accurate. It’s the crux of why Encamp exists — an end-to-end solution to make environmental compliance simple.
To get every Encamper on the same solution messaging page, we highlighted how our solution works and why it makes for Happy Encamper customers.
At this point, the Encamp platform is the environmental compliance and reporting solution for more than 8,000 Tier II reports filed, upwards of 5,000 facilities managed, over 20,000 compliance dates tracked, and 11,157 new trees planted on behalf of Encamp customers and employees. (In conjunction with the non-profit group, One Tree Planted, trees are planted for every Tier II report customers file using Encamp.)
The Fall Summit’s first day agenda wrapped up with guest speaker Ricky Pellitier of OpenView Partners and a group Q&A with Ricky and Encamp CEO Luke Jacobs. OpenView invests in rising tech companies like Encamp, and as Ricky pointed out, they see the Encamp platform and it’s automation capabilities for environmental compliance reporting as a significant differentiator in the EHS market.
The key to Encamp’s continued growth, Ricky added, will be its expanding solution roadmap and new products for compliance reporting in other regulatory disciplines like RCRA, air, and water. The takeaway from the fireside chat is that Encamp’s future is “very promising.”
Within the Encamp culture, it’s widely embraced to appreciate nature and the environment — and we’re doing our collective part to protect it. When we say what’s good for business is good for the environment, we stand by it.
We’ll do this all again soon at our spring gathering in March 2022. We haven’t decided on the destination yet, but we know it’ll be another adventure.
