Dear Adventures in Common Members:
We are extremely sad to tell you that Adventures in Common has closed. We started Adventures in Common with a dream; a dream of creating an amazing social adventures community, making it successful, and then taking it national and international. We were well on our way.
We even had made a deal with local WeWork locations to do events in their space. The goal was to start in San Francisco and then expand with them across the country. Our dream was so close.
Unfortunately, in December, WeWork corporate (a company valued at $20B) announced that they had bought Meetup for a reported $200M. Meetups will now be held in all 250+ of WeWork locations. The local WeWork team we had been dealing with was not previously aware of this pending deal. They are wonderful people and it is a pleasure to be working with them. We were just late to the party.
On one hand it validated our idea, that there is a need for a national social club with clubhouses to hold events as well as outside adventures. On the other hand, it made it next to impossible for us to go national. The money required to go against a competitor of that magnitude is just too much, and difficult to raise.
It was an amazing ride. In just 8 months we gained almost 1000 members and hosted over 200 events. We created many friendships and even a few romantic relationships. We changed a few people’s lives.
Our event staff, led by Taylor Brown, was phenomenal. I could not have asked for a better team, nor a leader like Taylor. If your team is looking for some real added value, or you know someone who is, please get in contact, and I’ll put you in touch with Taylor. She will be one of the best employee’s you have ever had.
