Guidesly closed a $4m seed financing round. This Boston-based platform connects a network of trusted guides to the world’s fisherman.

The round was led Stevenson Family Investment Limited Partnership (SFILP), which is headed by Howard and Andrew Stevenson, as well as new institutional investors Greycroft Partners & Elysian Park Ventures.

The company plans to use the funds for vertical SaaS expansion and to expand its reach into the outdoor recreation community.

Guidesly, headed by David Lord, is a technology company that creates a market for outdoor recreation. Guidesly connects outdoor enthusiasts to guides via consumer experiences and guide tools that enhance the guest experience. Guidesly started in fishing and connects fishing charter captains and fishing guides with anglers looking for fishing trips. The website and mobile apps offer a seamless experience.

The company has made it a priority to continue investing in vertical SaaS. In the second half of 2021, there was a 300% rise in SaaS guides that used the platform. Vertical SaaS will remain at the forefront of business, as new offerings are planned for the first half of 2022.
