An Introduction

About 7 months ago, Adam Michela and I quietly founded The Last Guide Company. Today we simply call the endeavor Last, a subtle reminder and challenge to build a brand that stands the test of time.

Our aim is to make it more fun to go out and explore. Of course, this is a loaded statement and also a theme familiar to us both. We’ve spent the past several months laying groundwork for our first venture, a product we look forward to revealing later this year.

As part of our journey, I’m happy to announce we’ve recently closed a seed round led by Josh Felser at Freestyle Capital. The round, which includes $2.1 million in funding, was joined by Greylock Partners, Founders Fund, Google Ventures, Sherpa Ventures, Designer Fund, BoxGroup, Launch Fund, SV Angel, Fuel Capital, Slow Ventures, Ruchi Sanghvi, Pete Cashmore, Tom Conrad, Todd Jackson, Tom Watson, and Semil Shah. (Deep Breath) We’re grateful for their belief in our vision.

The funding will be used to grow our small product team. In other words, we’re hiring.


We look forward to sharing more in months to come. For now, we’d simply be delighted if you follow us on Twitter.
