Not All Those That Wander Are Lost

I’m excited to announce today our latest investment in Wander.  You can read about details of the financing here.

I first met Wander’s CEO Jeremy Fisher many months ago while he was building Dinevore, a service he created to explore his passion around restaurants. Those of you who know Jeremy will know he is insanely passionate about discovering amazing places to eat, and sharing that passion with those around him. He is also an extremely active user of all things social and local.  But he found (and we agree) that there is something missing that impairs our ability to really explore the world around us in a way that is fun, aspirational and also useful. That’s what Wander looks to achieve.

The service is pre-launch, but is coming very soon. You can reserve your username at http://onwander.com/.

Wander is a member of the most recent NYC TechStars class, which seems to be going from strength to strength. We’re joined in this investment by friends old and new at Softech, SV Angel, Google, and others.

Check it out, it will be a fun journey.  Congrats on Jeremy, Keenan and the team!
