Greetings from Offsiter
Hello there, this is Hunter, Offsiter's founder. Since we're just getting started, I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself, and tell you more about what we're working on.
Before Offsiter, I spent 12+ years working with startups and young companies as a business developer and product strategist. I was fortunate enough to work at some amazing design agencies, venture backed startups, and even had the chance to co-found a consulting agency.
Throughout these experiences, I worked with dozens of organizations, and helped plan and execute countless events. Over the years, I became interested in how offsites and retreats could be used to achieve strategic goals and transform how people worked together. At the same time, I saw first hand how hard it was to pull off meaningful experiences. As I continued to experience the problem, and research solutions, I found there was no easy way to plan and book offsites online. I eventually picked up Offsiter.com, and in February of 2017, made the decision to work on the project full time.
Offsiter is a marketplace of retreats, activities, and facilitators. Our goal is two-fold:
- Build tools and services that help take the pain out of planning and booking team offsites, company retreats, and large organization gatherings.
- Enable authentic service providers to help organizations and their employees have meaningful experiences outside of the office.
Here are some of the things we're working on at Offsiter.
Offsiter Field Guides is a timely email with inspiration, tips, planning tools, resources, location overviews, and curated experiences for your next team offsite, company retreat or large organization gathering. Sign up for Field Guides here.
We're helping teams and companies create custom plans based on your culture, strategic objectives, and group size. Our process helps define goals, organize data requirements, and unique participant needs, and our experts help you select the perfect vendors from our marketplace.
We're digging deep in our network, and scouring Northern California to find the perfect vendors for the Offsiter marketplace. We work closely with our partners to understand their business, and then build listing pages with beautiful photography and detailed business information. If you have a retreat, activity, or service, sign up to join the Offsiter partner network here.
The Offsiter booking tool helps translate plans into action. Select only what you need, and easily book with a single payment.
*Limited availability alpha service. Contact us to learn more.
Offsiter is currently live in Santa Cruz, California. We chose to launch in Santa Cruz because of our roots there, the unique activities the region offers, and the close proximity to the bay area. We're currently working with qualified members to help plan and book team offsites in Santa Cruz, California. Contact us to learn more or sign up to learn about future location launches.
