Guide Success Manager
Who We Are:
The sad reality in this day and age is that schedules are tight and things stack up faster than we can knock ‘em down. What better way to make the most of your time than to get outdoors with family, friends, and our Damn Good Guides?
At Captain (captainexperiences.com), we’re building a platform for outdoor sports based on the belief that everyone deserves easy access to exploring the outdoors.
Focused first on fishing, we'll soon unlock all outdoor sports and geographies, and leading venture investors including Andrew Chen at a16z (Andreessen Horowitz), Goodwater Capital, Not Boring Capital, Capital Factory, and others back us in making our passion our profession. We hope you’ll join us.
