About Us

GoChair Team


CLIQ is here to make it easier for you to experience the outdoors—and to make it more comfortable. With over $1.5 million raised from Indiegogo backers, the Southern California’s flagship product, the CLIQ CHAIR (formerly GO CHAIR), is the only portable chair that folds down to the size of a water bottle and pops open with a click. You never know when a can’t-miss moment is going to happen, but you can always be ready to go with CLIQ CHAIR.

He is the co-author and co-inventor of 35 U.S. utility and design patents and applications.

Alexis Courson, Marketing & Customer Support
Alexis’s background is in sales and customer experience in the biotech and life sciences industry, where she worked closely with clients and internal support teams to ensure customer satisfaction and services delivery end to end. A hiker, outdoor enthusiast and mother of two, she was thrilled to join the CLIQ team and have her kids start carrying their own chairs to the beach. You might also recognize her from some of CLIQ’s customer education videos.


With our collective talents, we’ve worked hard to bring our first product, the CLIQ CHAIR to market—a chair that is revolutionary, looks great, and is functional and durable. We counted on the support and feedback of the Indiegogo community to help us bring the first set of CLIQ CHAIRs to the world, successfully raising over $1,500,000 with our crowd-funding campaign.

We would like to thank our team members, friends, and everyone who has helped throughout our journey. Your feedback, support, and positive encouragement have been incredibly helpful.

Thanks so much for all your support and we hope to see CLIQ's products accompany all your adventures, here and around the world.

Pop. CLIQ. Enjoy.
