Parachut The Netflix of Camera Gear

Not everyone can afford thousands of dollars of new camera gear every year, but Melissa Nui doesn’t want that to stand in the way of their creative ability; that's why she set out to start Parachut.

Within hours of launching she already had 500 people sign up for the service. Listen as she shares her story on American Dreams.
