The Vestigo Story
Old logo

Vestigo started in the Spring of 2015, while the founders, Marshall Mosher and Daniel McBrayer, were still in school at the University of Georgia. Marshall and Daniel dreamed about having a place online to find everything you could want to do outside, complete with someone to guide you in that activity. So they decided to build it.

They were in the first graduating class of the UGA accelerator program. During the summer of 2015, while Daniel built the beta version of the site, Marshall attended Singularity University in Silicon Valley. The beta launched in September of 2015.

In the Spring of 2017, we began to realize the power of using shared outdoor experiences not only for personal growth but to solidify common team goals and values. Since then, we’ve shifted our focus towards creating powerful team experiences that serve as an experiential analogy for a value, goal, or objective you want to instill in your team. With this new focus, we’re one of the only companies to truly perfect the balance of outdoor adventure and genuine team development in a way that truly emphasizes the values that make your company special.

Our core values:

The outdoors are for everyone
Everyone can find fulfillment and rejuvenation through nature.
Never stop exploring
We believe in trying new things and not settling for the status quo.
Take care of what you have
We love the outdoors and believe that all people have a responsibility to take care of it.
