Making summer plans? Looking for something a little more than just a place to stay? Then try Venku.
Venku is an online platform that connects outdoor-lovers with outdoor experiences in their area or an area they plan to visit.
Founded by Murielle Gaither in Cape Girardeau, Mo., her mission is to help get people outdoors and have more outdoor experiences.
“The problem that we have seen is that unless you know exactly what you’re looking for you will not find certain activities, and we wanted to fix that,” said Gaither, founder and CEO of Venku.
“Let’s take wild horses, for example. By using Venku, a local host expert can help you find out about where to find wild horses and tell you what else you can experience in a particular area.”
