Announcing the partnership, the founder and CEO of EquitiesFirst, Mr. Al Christy Jr. said today: “We are thrilled to partner with Nims who has achieved legendary status by making the impossible possible. When the opportunity presented itself to be part of Nims’ Everest 2022 climb and next extraordinary journey, it was an immediate yes from all of us at EquitiesFirst. Nims’ perspective that with a determined approach and a positive mindset, anything in life is possible aligns precisely with our own corporate philosophy.
Nims gained global recognition through Netflix’s global hit documentary “14 Peaks: Nothing is Impossible” which recorded him atop the world’s 14 tallest mountains in just six months and six days in 2019. Nepaland formerly in service with the British Special Forces, the Nims 14 Peaks journey began with the ascent of Annapurna, Nepal in April 2019 and ended at the top of Shishapangma, China in October 2019.
“My mountaineering mission began in December 2012 when I hiked to Everest base camp. This experience fueled my passion and ambition for the mountains. I would like to say a big thank you and welcome Al Christy and the global EquitiesFirst team as our partner for this Everest climb – together we are making this ‘mission possible'”.
the May 2022 The ascent will see Nims once again scale the summit of the world’s tallest mountain, Everest, at 8,849 metres. As seen on 14 Peaks, Nims’ Everest journey is sure to be another exciting, action-packed story with courage, perseverance and human effort at its heart.
Nims’ values align well with those of EquitiesFirst, which is in the business of providing progressive capital to help businesses and individuals achieve their ambitions. Founded in 2002 by Al Christy Jr.the company understands the challenges life can throw at people and businesses.
Al started by helping save a third-generation family apple farm in Michigan, United States by providing the capital needed to secure their business and legacy. Since its inception, EquitiesFirst has successfully completed 3 billion US dollars in raising capital for clients around the world.
Nims stands alone in terms of success at Big Mountain. Only 44 climbers have achieved the feat of consecutively climbing the 14 highest peaks in the world. The previous world record was seven years, 10 months and six days. Nims achieved the same feat in just six months and six days.
Nims rewrote the history books in a monumental way in 2019, defining his climbing mission as “Project Possible” as so many skeptics said his 14 Peaks challenge would prove impossible.
Along with completing his overall mission to climb the world’s 14 highest peaks in 2019, Nims also achieved six other world records in the process. The speed with which Nims and his team rose to the challenge was impressive. Through skill, planning, self-confidence and determination, Nims has shown that the impossible is possible.
Standing on top of Shishapangma after completing all 14 peaks was an incredible feeling, Nims reports: “It was a win for everyone. For everyone who has a dream. For everyone who wants to go beyond. I wanted that our 14 peaks challenge is to inspire people with a love for big mountains. More than that, I want everyone to know that if you set your mind to something, you can achieve it – no matter who or where you are. where you come from.
