Bullish has led a $2M funding round for Captain Experiences, a digital marketplace for outdoor adventures. Austin-based Captain Experiences focuses on connecting outdoor sports enthusiasts with vetted guides, initially concentrating on fishing. Since its launch in 2020, the platform has partnered with over 1,200 guides and booked more than 47,000 hours outdoors. The funds will support further growth in the fishing sector and fuel expansion to other outdoor sports.
"As a society, we're seeing massive escalations of both personal technological advances and a desire to spend more time doing outdoor adventures and activities but very little combination of the two," said Michael Duda, Managing Partner at Bullish. "Jonathan and Attison have the drive, ambition and most importantly, empathy for delivering a top-notch user experience in fishing and we believe Captain can become the expert global outdoor sports platform."
