Chimani began 2015 as a home-office based startup with big ideas by founders Kerry Gallivan and Shaun Meredith and ended the year as a thriving business with seven employees, an office in Portland, Maine, growing revenue, new business partnerships, and a suite of 20 mobile apps focused on the outdoors — with dozens more in the works.

With the National Park Service celebrating its 100th birthday in 2016, Chimani plans to join the celebration with several new park apps, including guides to Petrified Forest National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, Hot Springs National Park, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and Haleakala National Park, among others in the pipeline.

“2015 has been a remarkable year of growth and progress for Chimani, and we plan to continue on this roll as we move into the National Parks Centennial year,” says Kerry Gallivan, CEO and co-founder of Chimani.
