GoSnow secures Silicon Valley funding with a $20 million goal. Winter is coming...and it's invading Silicon Valley.
GoSnow, the world’s first industry-leading on demand bookings platform for winter snow sports, lessons, instructors, and activities, announces it has been backed by prominent Silicon Valley investors and Boston based product accelerator Jeavio with funding to build a $20 Million business within 18 months.
GoSnow will use the funding to accelerate adoption of its mobile and web based bookings platform for snow sports instructors and activities at Ski Resorts in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States.
The GoSnow on demand bookings platform has been created by Australian software executive and snowboard instructor Sean Bellerby and American pro snowboarder, PSIA trainer and global snowsports school management consultant, Scott Anfang to intuitively connect skiers and snowboarders to ski resorts, their instructors, and resort-based activities.
GoSnow helps ski resorts transform and modernize their current product offerings to meet the needs of tech-savvy skiers, snowboarders and ski resort guests. Snow sports will be easier to organize and book for consumers, and will increase frequency of resort guests’ visits, which increases GoSnow’s Ski Resort partners’ bottom line.
Both Bellerby and Anfang had, from experience within the snow industry, seen a gap in the snow sports market for people who don’t participate in snow sports because it is too hard to organize. Resort guests waste hours waiting in lines and surfing clunky websites trying to book lessons, buy lift tickets, or book ski trips and transportation.
GoSnow removes these barriers, enabling community based participation, and creates an on demand bookings experience, to meet the needs of all tech-savvy snow sport enthusiasts who would rather be on the slopes than waiting in line, on the phone, or maneuvering horribly designed websites to organize carpools, buy lift tickets, and book ski and snowboard lessons.
In 2018 resort guests will continue to embrace their tech-savvy lifestyles with an increasing number of on demand mobile connected products and services. GoSnow is leading this evolution in the ski industry and helping ski resorts increase revenues by addressing this trend.
GoSnow was co-founded in 2016 by entrepreneurs Sean Bellerby and Scott Anfang. The primary objective is to be a growth partner for Resort Partners and the winter snow sports industry. GoSnow is available on theGoogle PlayandAppleapp stores.
