Breakout Sessions #3August 23, 2018
1:45PM - 2:45PM
Ross started his business, Conquest Maps, in 2013 while working as an industrial designer at Priority Designs here in Columbus. After about two and a half years, he could no longer do both and decided to go full time with his business in 2016, moving out of his basement into a dedicated shop. Under Ross’s leadership, the company has grown to a staff of nine employees, operating out of a 7,200 sq. ft. facility, where nearly all products are designed, produced, warehoused, and shipped. There are many hats Ross regularly wears, but they consist primarily of CEO, marketing, graphics, and R&D. Through Conquest Maps, Ross and his team have been able to help tens of thousands of people document their travels, as well as inspire future adventures.
Family, travel, and keeping a good educational book close by are some of Ross’s top priorities these days. He and his wife have a beautiful daughter and a baby on the way!
